The Tajikistan Trees project is primarily to drawdown atmospheric CO2. Where possible the trees will function as wind barriers protecting the crops of smallholder farmers. Permanence of these trees will require farmers engagement - an excellent opportunity to involve the local community. The trees will increase local biodiversity, which is highly relevant for the livelihood of people in small, remote villages.
