Ivory Coast has announced a project to triple its forest cover by 2030.
It has lost nearly all of its forests in the last 50 years, primarily because of cocoa plantations.
The project aims to cover 20% of Ivory Coast.
It will also reinforce protection for national parks - including one of the last remnants of primary tropical rainforest in West Africa.
The World Bank will provide a $149m (£123m) to finance the project.
