Food aid


In response to the famine last year, EthioTrees used carbon finance to provide support to vulnerable communities. From sustainably managing their land during the crisis, the communities earned approximately 200,000 USD from the sale of Plan Vivo Certificates. This money was distributed as cash-for-food and allowed farmers to buy food in the city, which they then took back to their villages, a half day’s walk away. Within their villages, the 18 communities then collectively allocated food and funds towards 29,135 people who needed support most.
