Bringing Beirut River's ecosystem back to life
Challenge: How can we reduce high pollution levels around Beirut River?
Before
After 5 years
TypePublic
Area500 SQm = 2,000 Trees and Shrubs
LocationLebanon
StatusPlanted in 2019

Communities around Beirut River suffer from high pollution levels, dense neighborhoods, and lack biodiversity and ecosystem services.

Up to 30 times more dense compared to conventional plantations.

30 times better noise and dust reduction.

Upto 30 times better Carbon-dioxide absorption as compared to a monoculture plantation.

A completely maintenance-free, wild and native forest after the first three years.

A completely chemical and chemical fertiliser free forest that sustains itself and supports local bio-diversity.

 

The aim is to bring back lost ecosystems that previously used to exist next to the river, using the Miyawaki Tecnhique, which is a proven Japanese technique used to create forests that are 30 times denser and 10 times faster to grow.
