Arid Zone AfforestationNPO – What we Do

Making our world greener with zero or minimum watering water via implementing perpetual afforestations.

35% of terrestrial land is being threatened by desertification and this is over and above the already existing deserts. The amount of CO2 (carbon dioxide) which is currently produced by human activity, has gone far beyond the acceptable level. The only effective and natural way to eliminate the excess CO2 is to, plant trees, which absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.

AZA planting projects can include:

  • Reforestation of desertification threatened areas where long dry periods are followed by intense rainfall
  • Creation of green zones alongside national roads, especially in countries with deserted areas
  • Creation and development of plantations for fruits or substances producing trees for cosmetic and pharmaceutical use
  • Creation of green zones in deserted areas for touristic development
  • Transformation of sandy beaches into coastal forests

Advantages of greening and afforestation:

  • Produces Oxygen (O2)
  • Absorbs Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
  • Combats desertification
  • Filters out dust and air pollutants
  • Reduces atmospheric temperature
  • Increases precipitation
  • Reduces soil erosion
  • Improves absorption of water
  • Increases subsoil’s water quantity
  • Contributes to soil stabilization
  • Enhances flora stabilization
  • Offers shelter to wildlife
  • Promotes biodiversity
  • Induces eco balance
  • Reduces sand migration
