Natural Rebirth

Sustainable development and protection of the natural heritage of the Goada Forest

The Unione Montana Valli Orco e Soana (TO) has set up a partnership with the Equiliberi Onlus association and the Computing Science Department of the University of Turin, in order to use FirstLife, previously adapted to Burkina Faso, for support its first decentralised cooperation project in Africa.

The Unione Montana Valli Orco e Soana (TO) has adopted FirstLife to map land use in the Goada Forest, in Burkina Faso, where it is taking action to defend protected land, enhancing the agro-forestry sector and promoting sustainable agriculture also outside protected areas.

The opportunities for direct interaction between Italian and Burkinabe municipalities will increase, as well as the quality of their exchanges, thanks to the use of FirstLife. They can directly share and apply best practices in public-private partnerships for the protection of the natural heritage of the Goada forest.

Technical Partners - In Italy: Unione Montana Valli Orco e Soana, Associazione Equiliberi onlus, Gruppo di Azione Locale del Canavese and the Computing Science Department of the University of Turin. In Burkina Faso: Municipality of Kongoussi, AJPEE NGO, Ministère de L’Environnement, de l’Économie verte et du Changement climatique and the Ministère de l’Agriculture, aménagements Hydro-Agricoles et Mécanisation.

Financial partners - Regione Piemonte, Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, Otto per Mille della Chiesa Valdese, other private foundations.

Duration - 2020-2022
