Happy 10th Birthday Bush Telegraph!

Bush Telegraph birthday editionForests for People, People for Forests celebrates the UN International Year of Forests 2011 and marks the 10 year anniversary of the Bush Telegraph. To celebrate and in honour of trees, this issue is printed on recycled paper*. It starts off by giving an overview of why we need forests and why forests need our help. The Bush Telegraph then explores different institutions “Taking Action” for forests and trees. This includes the UN World Heritage Forest Programme, the Namibian Directorate of Forestry and NaDEET’s own 365 Trees Project. Most Namibians have never seen a forest as Namibia is the driest country in sub-Saharan Africa and hardly has any forests. This issue aims to bring attention to our dependence on forests regardless of where they are located on Earth and the significance of every single tree. Download a PDF here.
*Why aren’t all Bush Telegraphs printed on recycled paper? Ironically, recycled paper in Namibia costs significantly more than regular paper and with our limited budget we cannot afford it. We currently print 18,000 copies with a per copy cost of N$2.50 (US$0.35, €0.25).
