‘No doubt, there is deforestation. There is forest degradation. There is climate change. I think  once you were wearing  one or two layers of  blankets  to cover yourself from the biting weather of  high land ,but now the reverse is happening .even a single bed sheet  or a T-shirt could  suffice toward yourself off the rising hot temperature or  the scorching noon sun’ he said adding that Awi communities must do something and  contribute their share so as to reverse and take the  changing climate condition  back to its status u ante.

Dr. Girma Balcha, chairperson of the Task Force on his on his part reiterated that   the Almighty has created and served us with this beautiful planet together with all its rich natural resources. The earth was full and nothing was left. Everything was abundant and in order. What happened then?We spoiled it knowingly and unknowingly by not using the resources we are endowed with properly. Just close your eyes for a while and think what will happen at the end of the day if our going continue as business as usual scenario.Total catastrophe and destruction would come. Resources are becoming scare. Ices are melting, floods are flooding. Homes, offices, and even shades are heating. I think we need to work hard towards restoring what we destroyed ourselves, he made it clear.

When Ato Eyob, National REDD+ secretariat  safeguard  specialist  talked  communities about  drivers of deforestation and forest degradation as well as their mitigation and adaptation measures, Ato Temesegen Yohanes, SESA TF Co-Secretary  briefed  them on  environmental and social benefits of REDD+  three by paving the way for  clearing age old  biases and prejudices, attitudes hovering and  around forests and forestry.

Meanwhile communities break into three groups (youth, women and elderly) for a two hour session to identify the local divers and solutions of deforestation and forest degradation by themselves.

Except some technical  problems seen in selection of medium of consultation, making available  checklists and audio visual  documentation experts, Both the Discussions and, Group presentations  that were preceded reportedly by free, prior informed consent said successful.
