Regreening deserted fields in Sub-Saharan regions

Pitch

In cooperation with professors from the University of Bremen and local partners in Cameroon, we have developed an entrepreneurial approach to combat desertification in Cameroon.
Using the ReviTec technology developed by researchers at the University of Bremen, we fill biodegradable bags with various local substrates and seeds and lay them on the affected fields. The bags provide the seedlings with nutrients and sufficiently store water to guarantee sustainable plant growth, even in very dry weather conditions. Our aim is to build up a business in Cameroon which offers a regreening service to the local communities. This service consists of targeting the respective fields, filling the bags with regionally adapted substrates and seedlings, laying the bags out on the fields and communicating with the local landowners to garantuee a sustainable land usage.
