In 2021, the United Nations declared this decade (2021 – 2030), the Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, a global cry which aims to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems on every continent and in every ocean. Icoinic is committed to support the regreening of our world. 

Earlier this year, Icoinic partnered with Justdiggit, an organization committed to regreening Africa in the coming 10 years in the aims of controlling climate change. As a partner, Icoinic contributes to the new re-greening project in Singida, Tanzania. This project is expected to have great impact in the coming three years, with 34.000 trees regenerated and 4.400 people positively impacted.

As part of its activities, Justdiggit released their 2021 Impact Report and we’re happy to share some key highlights with you.

The first program in northern Tanzania started. 55,800 bunds have been dug in Kenya and Tanzania. Next to that, specifically in Central Tanzania, over 3.4 million trees were regenerated, over 31 thousand meters Fanya Juu and Chini were dug and 66 villages were added to the project in the Singida region where Icoinic is primarily contributing.

This is not all, but Justdiggit also launched a new brand film and celebrated the Youtube virality of the song ‘Kijanisha’ -make it green in Swahili- a collaboration between their four Tanzanian ambassadors and Justdiggit Lead Foundation.


About Justdiggit

Justdiggit empowers farmers to regreen their land by showing the benefits of restoring land and providing them with techniques on how to get started. People empowerment is synonymous with Icoinic’s values, and we are positive that together we can increase sustainability and leave a greener world. 


Justdiggit’s re-greening techniques

Different landscapes require different restoration techniques. This is why Justdiggit uses a variation of techniques in its projects. The first technique is called Treecovery or Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR), an agroforestry approach to regrow trees and support new, naturally emerging sprouts to grow big. It involves a process of selecting, pruning and protecting stumps of cut-down trees. The second is Bunding, a technique which captures rainfall in bunds. This way, rainwater has more time to enter the soil and restore the water balance. The seeds in the soil get the chance to sprout, and eventually allow the area to grow green, lush and cool. The third technique is via the creation of grass seed banks. Read more about all the techniques here
