APN seeks to strengthen the capacity of the Arab peoples to sustain the region's natural resources and gain sovereignty over them , particularly in areas suffering from war and occupation.
The ‘Trees of Life’ project marked another major effort that involved planting 10,900 olive, almond and grape tree saplings in lands in Bethlehem threatened to be seized by Israel. The cultivation operation is designed to help farmers generate income by empowering them and helping them hold on to the land.
In the first phase of the project, 680 saplings of fruit trees were planted in Wadi Fukeen village adjacent to two Israeli settlements.
In the second phase, 910 fruit tree saplings were planted in Nahaleen village land that is surrounded by three Israeli settlements.
