CVF Molla’s area of research is climate resilient green growth. Ethiopia launched the sustainable land management program and consequently, farmers in each region have allocated 30 to 60 days/year free labour for soil and water conservation activities to restore the ecology and adapt the climate change and large area closures are developed with the aim of restoring the land and biodiversity. Thus, the main aim of his research is to investigate how apiculture is integrated with sustainable natural resource management and green growth within the context of job creation and income generation along with climate change adaptation and mitigation. Through the CIRCLE programme, he hopes his research and academic career would be improved to contribute in climate change adaptation and mitigation
