Hill Country Rain Forest, Evergreen Forest and top soil Conservation with community participation is a project which focuses on Climate Change and food security.
According to the Global Assessment of Forest and Soil Degradation in Sri Lanka, major contributors to land degradation are, clearance of forest cover, soil erosion and soil fertility degradation. Exploitation of ground water and water pollution are also becoming a cause for land degradation. About 48 percent of land in Sri Lanka was degraded due to above indicated causes.
By identification of natural disasters which are continually experienced at current days, NBA-SED had worked out a proposal with hill country rural communities – especially women and youth, to implement by giving the highest priority for rain forest conservation and evergreen forest conservation and poverty alleviation.
