The climate change is most influenced in the land at so-called a steppe country, such as Mongolia. Mongolia’s pastureland is degraded or desertified and to influence their ecosystem and way of life.Many Japanese NGO groups are conducting tree-planting program in Mongolia at present, but tree-planting work becomes wasteful for animal harm for much tree-planting program. Participation of a local resident is indispensable for promotion of the tree-planting program for the continuation. Tree-planting program requiring long term to get the profit, combination with the economical profit is indispensable for the success of the project. Prickly Plant KARAGANA to traditionally be worthless plant is converted into cash plant by Agro-forestry for the sustainability for the project. Increasing interest to the afforestation, an economic incentive, nomadic behavioral changes on TTM will be promoted.
