Rainlands has partnered with WeForest, a non profit Belgian based NGO, and engaged the estimated 1000 small scale farmers in the Kamfinsa catchment area and Luanshya district to try and reestablish the diminishing tree mass.

Outreach and training programmes related to sustainable agriculture and reforestation
Alternatives to charcoal

Running parallel to tree planting projects, Rainlands and WeForest are involving farmers in Assisted Natural Regeneration practices (ANR). ANR is simply the human protection and preservation of natural tree seedlings in forested areas.

Rainlands runs training workshops for the small scale farmers engaged in these projects. Content includes the sustainable harvesting of timber without chopping trees, use of wood chips for mulching and cooking fuel, agroforestry and sustainable farming practices.

Tree mass progression is monitored with satellite images. The model incorporates incentives by assisting farmers to establish agroforestry enterprises such as honey production and fruit orchards.

Rainlands has experience in the construction of industrial water purification systems using natural filtration. Additionally, design and installation of water features and natural swimming pools is a feature of their expertise.
