Tech start-up to allow Diasporan Africans help fight deforestation back home



An African start-up committed to sustainable development is trying to help the situation of deforestation on the continent, using the modern technology of geotagging and blockchain.
The organization, Most Influential People of African Descent (MIPAD), calls their social initiative My Roots in Africa project.
In the process, MIPAD hopes to plant more than 200 million trees across Africa by 2024. The significance of the deadline is the end of the UN’s International Decade for People of African Descent.
