Within Sakalalina Reserve reforestation and preservation interventions have been carried out over an area of 1,300,000 square metres, and 2,045,805 kg of CO2 emissions have been offset.
Sakalalina Reserve is located in southern Madagascar. As a result of desertification caused by fires and climate change water springs that supply the local hospital and village are drying out.
The intervention aims to protect an area of 130 hectares, reforesting, organising activities to avoid the risk of fires and livestock contamination, and restoring and protecting water springs. An important nursery has been created and planting activities of native tree species were inaugurated in January 2012.
Together with the Sakalalina Reserve reforestation project, another project was launched aimed at environmental preservation, improvement of food security and the encouraging the area's sustainable development.
