Environmental protection and rehabilitation: – OSD in collaboration with UNHCR, since 2014 established nursery sites in both Aysita and Berhale woredas of Afar region and planted more than 20,000 trees with the survival rate of 85%. The plantation was carried out 75% in the refugee camps and 25% in the host community (schools, institutions, private owners…etc) compounds. OSD achieved also to erect 6.5 km water pipe from awash river to Aysita refugee camp for the watering of trees planted in the green areas. In Berhale also we have established water from a borehole for the purpose of watering the nursery site and planted trees in the camp. The nursery sites and plantation of trees are still going on annually with improved seeds suitable for desert weather.
