A sustainable approach
In this context of poverty, drought and deforestation, our objective is to contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation by fighting deforestation. The aim is to reforest by making rational, optimal and sustainable use of forest biomass for the benefit of neighbouring populations. This is done in association with local partners who have a good understanding of the terrain and the surrounding socio-economic context (in particular APAF – Association for the promotion of fertile trees, agroforestry and forestry).
How do we do it?
Firstly, our experts carry out inventories of all forest resources and introduce the possibility of exploiting non-wood forest products (edible nuts, mushrooms, fruits, herbs, leaves, spices, condiments, aromatic plants, honey, fibre resins, gums, etc.).
The forest is then divided into harvesting zones. These zones are exploited in an alternate manner, thus allowing part of the forest to rest while it regenerates, in order to avoid endangering the viability and sustainability of the whole.
