WASHINGTON, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New Leaf Africa (NLA) (www.NewLeafAfrica.com), a team of leaders in technology, population health and renewable energy, has opened a new office in Conakry, Guinea.
"The Republic of Guinea is critical to global and regional biodiversity conservation," stated Thomas Babbington, CEO of NLA. "The new office in Conakry will allow local employees to quickly coordinate efforts with NLA teams in Europe and America as well as increase the coordination between local conservation, development organizations and government representatives."
Right now, it is estimated that a staggering 75,000 acres of forest is lost in Guinea each year due to slash and burn agriculture, uncontrolled grazing, and burning and hunting. "With our unique team of experts, expansive resources and unmatched turn-key approach of taking projects from concept to implementation, we'll help the Republic of Guinea strengthen its commitment to preserving their precious natural resources, improving the lives of their citizens and supporting global initiatives geared toward reduction of greenhouse gases."
NLA, working with the Republic of Guinea and other stakeholders, will explore and execute projects that are most feasible for the ecological sustainability and economic development of Guinea. Projects in the areas of renewable energy, water purification and ecologically sound manufacturing will help preserve vast portions of Guinea's forestry land, improve the lives of Guinea citizens and support global initiatives geared toward reduction of greenhouse gases.
With offices in Washington, DC, London and Conakry, Guinea, New Leaf Africa is a team of leaders in technology, population health and renewable energy with a mission of bringing social and economic sustainability to developing countries in the African continent. NLA focuses on projects that advance access to improved health and education. NLA believes a sustainable future is a balance of ecological integrity, economic opportunity and human well-being.
