Cool Forest Ambassador

Fataï AINA

Executive Director of NGO Amis de l'Afrique Francophone- Benin (AMAF-BENIN)

"It is important and urgent to protect fresh forests from risk on the one hand, to capitalize three ecosystem services namely: sequestration of CO2; the maintenance of rare and threatened wildlife species; and the fight against floods. On the other hand, to minimize the direct and underlying causes responsible for the decline or loss of biological and cultural diversity as well as the ecological and socio-economic services of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS)."
