The project seeks to create a sustainable greenbelt that can serve as a model for biodiversity restoration and urban greening.

By restoring the greenbelt, the project will help mitigate the urban heat island effect, improve air quality, and provide a habitat for local wildlife. Additionally, the project will engage local communities in the restoration process, offering education and training opportunities to promote environmental stewardship and sustainable land management practices. This program aligns with broader goals of economic support and environmental sustainability, fostering a healthier and more resilient urban environment in Ouagadougou.
