How the activity addresses climate change: The Carob tree seedling was produced at the Royal Botanic Garden’s (RBG) nursery to restore Jordanian degraded land; such restoration with native trees using micro-harvesting techniques would help mitigate climate change by storing carbon, halting land degradation and fixing atmospheric Nitrogen. Additionally, it has an aesthetic side, can assist in poverty alleviation due to its economic return, and in fighting hunger and malnutrition due to its high-value nutritional content.
