The annual cost of land degradation in Guinea is estimated at 512 million United States Dollars (USD). This is equal to 12% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product. Land degradation leads to reduction in the provision of ecosystem services that takes different forms – deterioration in food availability, soil fertility, carbon sequestration capacity, wood production, groundwater recharge, etc. – with significant social and economic costs to the country. Guinea’s concern is the low level of fertility of arable land, which puts them at odds in terms of food security.
Also the extreme poverty of most rural communities in Guinea puts pressures on natural resources and drought vulnerabilities. In Guinea, 1.6 million people were living on degrading agricultural land already in 2010 – an increase of 25% in a decade, bringing the share of rural residents who inhabit degraded agricultural land up to 22% of the total rural population.

Things have not become better since then …
Land degradation can severely influence populations’ livelihood by restricting people from vital ecosystem services (including food and water), increasing the risk of poverty.
Facing these challenges Invescorp as part of the Guinean economy and community has decided to take counter measures to make Guinea a thriving nation:
Economy & Ecology
Meaningful and future oriented economic growth and projects, resulting in ecological thriving and stability.

Humanitarian Development objected to positive social and societal impact, elevating life quality and conditions.
