Trees are a vital resource for rural populations in the Kaliro District of Uganda. Wood is used for cooking, house building and it provides an essential source of income. Finally, we should not forget that the environment and biodiversity are dependent upon healthy tree populations.
Soil is essential to life: it’s the base on which we walk and the source of our food. We take soil for granted; it is always there for us wherever we are. Maybe that is why we often forget about the health and quality of soils. The uncomfortable truth is that soils are currently suffering in silence.
