Compensate for your journeys by supporting the planting of trees in the Sahel!

Contribute to the Ko Neere Project in Burkina Faso

Support the Ko Neere community reforestation and climate protection project in Burkina Faso.

Like us, support this project, while offsetting the climate impact of your journeys by plane or car.

Reforestation has many advantages:

  • reduced drought and improved rainfall
  • fight against climate change and improve climatic conditions
  • increased biodiversity
  • economic benefits for local populations and fight against population displacement, reduction in the number of refugees

How much to pay (how many trees) in compensation for your plane or car trip?

Amount of compensation = 0.0066 euros x number of km traveled (by plane or car)

The price per tonne of CO2 equivalent (1000 Kg) is 22 € (Good Planet reference). The distribution of funds goes totally to the Ko Nere project.

Count 0.3 Kg CO2 / km by car (average on the fleet of cars, knowing that this figure varies according to the fuel and the power of the vehicle) (to be divided by the number of passengers).

And 0.3 Kg of CO2 / km per passenger by plane (average over all journeys, knowing that this figure varies according to the distance large flight or domestic flight)

So multiply your km by (22 euros x 0.3 divided by 1000 = 0.0066) and you will have the amount to compensate.

Payment is made via the A MURT association , by Paypal or online bank card (indicate that it is for the Ko Neere project).

This sum will be very beneficial to the Ko Nere project, so for example, for 1000 km traveled, you donate 66 euros to Ko Nere, which allows for example to contribute to the daily remuneration of a local trainer for the planting of trees in areas which otherwise risk becoming more and more desert. See below for more information.

“Ko Nere” is the product of several years of experience with the rural communities of Kombissiri, province of Bazega and Tanghin Dassouri, province of Kadiogo in the Sahel. To see images of the project, it’s here . For the moment the project has focused on the study of water accessibility and community organization of target villages, training / awareness raising around the use of water such as community market gardening, the establishment of tree nurseries (with a view to reforestation and fruit production), hygiene, organization of training for women, etc. It is the village associations that determine the needs and the strategy to be adopted, particularly in terms of boreholes, training needs, etc.

The project is now passing the stage of reforestation. The idea is to develop groves in these villages, small forests (of local trees, resistant) of 1 to 2 Ha protected from the wandering of animals where the fauna and flora can regenerate, then to deploy them gradually. . At this stage, the project concerns 8 places and 20,000 trees.

The budget concerns plantations, water management, nursery protection, tools, training / awareness, maintenance. 

 8 equipped boreholes;  1 solar oven installed;  10 training courses in organic market gardening and drying offered to the women’s group;  Production of tomatoes, parsley, cucumbers and other vegetables;  Drying of vegetables and mangoes;

Participate in the project budget to allow the Sahel to fight against drought, and increase the forest area in Africa. Good for biodiversity, good for communities, good for the climate!
