Destruction of forest cover along the Beira – Chimoio corridor road is notorious and increasing. The project will aim to establish a biodiesel production skim through Jatropha oil. A Jatropha tree nursery will be established, and tree fences will be used to protect community farming areas of ten communities. In future Jatropha trees will provide firewood, and its seeds oil. Community members will receive rope pumps to secure a continuous multiplication. The project will also disseminate the use of improved stoves that will save firewood.
