The project (Conservation of Indigenous Tree species in Gada Biyu Wetland, Kwali Area Council, FCT. Abuja.) is community based and will take place on Gada Biyu wetland which is a floodplain (Fadama) of about 2km stretch, lying at the foot of a hill, enclosed and drained by the tributaries of river Afara.

The project objective and goal is the Regeneration of Natural Resources and Mentainance of Ecological balance through sustainability on resource utilization to enhance productivity on the wetland.
