PRI is an accredited CSO with the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and the United Nation Climate Technology Centre & Network (UN CTCN).  We’re working with other organizations like Muslim Aid Australia (MAA), the Hans Foundation (currently, in India) PRI is looking for funding to acquire an earth track machine to accelerate natural land regeneration in Somaliland and beyond.  If we look at the estimated costs cited for Niger’s Maradi & Zinder regions – $100 million USD over 20 years w/average external costs not exceeding $20 USD per hectare – 5 million hectares were “regreened” in 20 years. The return on the investment of this regreening work in Niger is estimated to be $500 million USD annually.  Rhamis Kent, who is leading this work on the ground, has envisioned combining elements of “mechanized” labor to augment the efforts of people working on-the-ground “mostly because the speed at which the land degradation is said to be spreading requires it” (10 – 12 million hectares per year according to UNCCD).  One of these earth track machines could prepare 10 – 15 hectares (25 – 40 acres) of land, we need 46 – 68 of these units (which would cost roughly $250,000 each).  This would require an investment of anywhere from about $11 million – $17 million USD.  That’s basically 250,000 hectares per year with an investment of $5 million USD per year.
