Action for environmental Sustainability has had recommendable achievements in the focal areas of GEF including the following:

The organization has so far implemented forestation projects in various areas in Malawi and so far 3000 trees has been planted, thus, reducing environmental degradation to a reasonable extent. Other activities on this includes advocacy on logging and charcoal burning (Which also is a major concern for climatic change due to increased carbon emission)

Through its initiatives the organization has been able to encourage planting of the drought resistance crops, practicing irrigation farming, and promoting good farming practices that does not influence or promote Soil erosion and the use of chemicals which leads to persistence organic pollutants. And this   is an achievement on Climatic change adaption and persistence organic pollutants GEF focal areas.

I n 2008 the organization implemented a project in Mangochi District (one of the lake shore area) which provided awareness on the depletion of certain type of fish in lake Malawi due to overfishing, it also advocated for community participation in enforcement of the off season fishing period which was set by the government of Malawi and the project provided other entrepreneurship alternatives by training community Members in tinsmith, agribusiness etc. This project is one of our major achievements in promoting Biodiversity.
