Conservation of Wild Coffee Forests in Ethiopia

The remaining 2,000 square kilometres of afromontane cloud forest in the for-mer kingdom of Kafa in the south-west of Ethiopia provide not only storage for vital groundwater reserves for the region, they are also home to a wide variety of species and make up one of the most important genetic reserves of the world. Wild-growing Coffea arabica can be found here, which is a genetic re-source of value beyond measure. mehr Mehr


Diverse Work

NABU has been advising and supporting the Ministry of Nature Protection of the Republic of Armenia since 2001. In the first few years of our partnership we put the implementation of international nature conservation conventions at a high priority, but in 2006 we were able to expand our partnership to include joint projects as well. In March 2007, NABU and the Ministry signed a cooperation agreement to protect Armenia’s biodiversity.

NABU in Azerbaijan

Conserving biodiversity is a challenge that demands commitment from both government institutions and society as a whole. Not everyone is aware of the consequences of using natural resources unsustainably, but the effects of environmental destruction affect many people both directly and indirectly. That’s why it is essential to raise public awareness and to show local communities good alternatives to using their natural resources. mehr Mehr


Sustainable Development for Nature Conservation

Kenya is famous for its fascinating nature and extensive national parks that draw in visitors from all around the world every year. Increasing population and growing poverty compounds the local communities’ dependency on natural resources and leads to conflicts and overexploitation of the forest. NABU is supporting the long-term conservation of nature with innovative ideas in co-operation with local partners.

Nature conservation transcending borders in the high mountains of Pamir-Alai

National and international experts systematically compiled information about the plants and animals of the fragile high mountain region and in doing so, also recorded endangered species like the snow leopard, the Himalayan brown bear, the Marco-Polo sheep and many rare bird species – NABU has been working for many years to ensure the survival of species such as these. mehr Mehr

Cotton made in Africa

International Species Conservation

All around the world natural habitats are being destroyed and degraded by deforestation, the expansion of agriculture, human settlements and environmental pollution. Human activity has caused the plants and animals that are an integral part of these ecosystems to be put under pressure and to disappear from their natural habitats, many of them even becoming extinct; scientists have estimated that every year around 26,000 species are lost forever. mehr Mehr

Establishing and Strengthening Protected Areas

The establishment of protected areas is one of the most important tools in nature conservation. Every ecosystem has a delicate balance of elements that can be easily upset through human intervention. Protected areas are often a refuge for rare and endangered plant and animal species and prevent unique areas of countryside from being developed or overexploited. mehr Mehr

Fighting Poverty

poverty reduction and nature conservation

Around the world just around 1.1 billion people are living in extreme poverty. Two thirds of the world’s poor live in rural areas in developing countries and the majority of them are heavily dependant on their local natural resources to survive. Firewood is needed to cook food everyday. The local population gather fruit, seeds, nuts and other non-wood products from the forests and other ecosystems. Poverty forces many farmers to destroy the forest and convert the land into farmland simply to survive.
