Ethiopia, a country known for its rich cultural heritage and diverse natural landscapes, has a long-standing tradition of environmental stewardship deeply rooted in its history. Recognizing the urgent need for conservation and sustainable practices in the face of modern challenges, the Ethiopian government launched the Green Legacy Initiative in 2019. The Ethiopian Green Legacy initiative holds great importance as a comprehensive reforestation and conservation program aimed at addressing environmental, human health, and socio-economic challenges. This article presents a review of the one health benefits associated with the Ethiopian Green Legacy initiative. By exploring the various dimensions of this initiative, including its environmental impact, influence on human health and well-being, biodiversity enhancement, economic opportunities, challenges, and future prospects, we aim to highlight the significance of this ambitious project in promoting sustainable development and improving the overall quality of life in Ethiopia.
