The Horn Re-Greening Programme was established to protect valuable ecosystems and the biodiversity in the Horn of Africa region, rehabilitate degraded areas, and enhance the benefits of ecosystem goods and services. It aimed to address key environmental and social issues in relation to land degradation. In doing so, the programme sought proper conservation and management of existing forests and rangelands, rehabilitation of degraded areas (e.g. reforestation and soil conservation programmes), management of invasive species, livelihood development (e.g. beekeeping, ecotourism development).
The programme was engaged in the rehabilitation of three areas in Ethiopia; the Addis Ababa Mountain Range, Rift Valley, and Gambella. These areas were/ are facing soil and vegetation degradation at a considerable rate due to anthropogenic and other factors.
