Brazil : new planting season within the Center for Bioeconomy and Conservation of the Amazon (CBCA)

Since September 2019, Reforest'Action has been supporting the restoration of Amazonian forest cover by funding an ambitious reforestation project in the state of Rondônia, in the southwest of the Amazon. This region, one of the most deforested in Brazil, is part of the "arc of deforestation", a vast territory where agricultural land has replaced the primary forest. Led by our partner CES Rioterra, this 4-year-old project in the Brazilian Amazon took a new turn in 2022. Discover the actions carried out on the ground for almost a year.

Peru: socio-economic impacts of a project started 8 years ago

Initiated in 2015, the project developed in the Peruvian region of San Martín, and led in the field by the Urku Centre, is the first project financed by Reforest'Action at the very heart of the Amazon forest. If the early years were focused on the development of agroforestry, this last season is defined by the natural regeneration of a great number of native species, in a continued effort to conserve the Amazon. After 8 years of operation, the impacts of the project on the local communities are significant. Here is an overview of the economic alternatives born from the regenerated forest.

In Peru, forest restoration and agroforestery create wealth for villagers

In the province of La Convención, Peru, the project financed by Reforest'Action and carried out in the field by our partner Pachamama Raymi aims to recreate a sustainable social, environmental and economic landscape, favorable to the preservation of biodiversity and the fight against climate change. Around the town of Echarati, located in a valley at an altitude of more than 1100 meters, trees are planted in degraded forest plots and in private agroforestry plots.

Restoration of Colombia's Páramos: a regenerative approach

Colombia, which recently emerged from a drawn-out armed conflict, is now suffering the consequences of booming agricultural development, leading to the destruction of natural ecosystems. Faced with devastating deforestation, we must adopt an area-specific approach. To restore the Colombian Páramos, an unparalleled high-altitude biotope, and to contribute to the socio-economic sustainability of local communities settled there for centuries, Reforest'Action is deploying a regenerative project on a landscape level.

In Sumatra, villagers reconnect with the benefits of mangroves

During the audit mission of our two projects located in Sumatra in October 2022, we went to meet those who live off the mangrove and who work together to restore it. In the field, villagers are quick to share their stories with us. We have collected the stories of their greatest successes in rehabilitating the mangrove at the heart of their daily lives.

Regenerative projects to restore Sumatra's mangroves

Reforest'Action's involvement in Indonesia dates back to 2017. With the aim of restoring and extending the native mangrove on the island of Sumatra in order to protect its coastline and secure the economic activities linked to it, a sustainable partnership was established that year with the local NGO Yagasu. Since the autumn of 2021, Reforest'Action has extended its range of activities by financing a second mangrove restoration project in Sumatra, designed to last three years and carried out by the NGO Yakopi.

Mexico: the circular bioeconomy to restore the land of the jaguar

In the state of Campeche in Mexico, intensive livestock breeding and oil palm cultivation have replaced the ancestral production of "dye wood". The "Land of the Jaguar" natural ecosystems are true nuggets of biodiversity and are full of endemic species that must be protected, just like the legendary feline. Annette, Regional Coordinator for Reforest'Action, went to meet Juan-Carlos, who is in charge of the project we are financing. Discover the backstory of an innovative concept, combining circular bioeconomy and conservation of natural areas of inestimable value.

Northern Peru: agroforestry to revive the Pachamama

In northern Peru, deforestation and natural disasters have weakened Mother Earth, goddess of the Inca descendants, the Kichwas. Due to the lack of fertility, local farmers abandoned their lands, which have been falling into ruin for almost twenty years. Barely eighteen months after its launch, the project developed by Reforest'Action and the Center of Innovation and Management for Sustainable Development (CIGDES) has already planted more than 600,000 trees through the installation of agroforestry systems designed to restore the fertile land.

Fertilising trees are renewing agroforestry practices in Togo

As in the majority of African countries, Togo’s demography involves the intensive use of land through agricultural practices to be developed. An age-old form of agroforestry, using fertilising trees such as the mysterious Samanea Saman, is one solution to counter the devastating effects of monocultures and climate change. Working together with the APAF association for the promotion of fertilising trees, agroforestry and forestry, 700,000 trees were planted in 2020 in 57 villages in the Wawa prefecture.

The regenerated mangrove of Sumatra

On the Indonesian island of Sumatra, mangroves are a source of life, natural resources and economic activity for local communities. Threatened by industrial palm oil production, intensive aquaculture and charcoal exports, this forest ecosystem between land and sea is disappearing. To restore the mangrove in North Sumatra and allow it to once again realise its wide range of environmental and socio-economic benefits, Reforest'Action is funding two regenerative projects that will have helped to reconstitute nearly 900 hectares of mangrove since 2017 and by 2024. Discover the report of our mission in the field, meeting our project leaders and the people who contribute to them on a daily basis.
