BWNS: Youth Initiative in Cambodia Reduces Soil Erosion During Floods

April 16, 2021, in Videos > News, by

This video from the Baha’i World News Service (BWNS) describes how, in 2019, a group of young adolescents in the Cambodian village of Okcheay set out to plant trees along a patch of road to improve air quality and provide shelter from the heat. At the time, they could not have anticipated that this section of the road would be protected from severe erosion during the floods which came a year later.
