Environmental Project funded by the Ruffor-UK Foundation

One of our former MEDfOR students, Tesfay Bezah from Ethiopia, and now a Lecturer and Researcher at University of Adigrat, has recently had a project approved for funding from The Ruffor Foundation.
The project: Empowering Community to Introduce Area Enclosure for Enhancing Natural Regeneration of the Endangered Boswellia Papyrifera and its Degraded Habitat in Ethiopia, is the continuation of a former project: Prioritizing the Factors Affecting Conservation of the Endangered Boswellia papyrifera Tree Species, And Developing Its Community-Based Solutions in Ethiopia
