All About The Event
The inauguration of the Somali Environment Protection Alliance Network (SEPAN) is taking place on March 23, 2013, 4:00pm at Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria Campus.
Since the collapse of the central government in 1991, the illegal logging and deforestation in Somalia have expeditiously flourished. The Somali charcoal trade has became the number one cash export to oil rich gulf countries such Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, and many more. In our current estimate, the number of charcoal export is more than 1,650,000 metric tons.
Our land is crying and our people are starving, because of this senseless deforestation and the toxic waste dumping.
