SAVE the trees, PLANT more trees

SAVE the trees, PLANT more trees: In partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, USAID - US Agency for International Development’s Compass program trained 26 volunteers to conduct a full-scale urban #treemapping exercise in Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) using state-of-the-art “i-Tree Eco” technology to monitor and protect trees.

The i-Tree Eco software provides valuable information on how trees remove carbon dioxide and improve air quality in cities, reduce storm water floods, and mitigate other impacts of climate change. This inventory will generate a high-quality evidence base to show the value of saving existing trees -- and planting new ones in urban areas, resulting in more green-space within our cities
