Vitiforestry at the Ruinart Champagne House to regenerate ecosystems

Vitiforestry at the Ruinart Champagne House to regenerate ecosystems

Accompanied by Reforest'Action, the Ruinart Champagne House has been deploying a pilot project since 2020 in its Taissy vineyard, north of the Montagne de Reims, in the Marne region. A great plot of almost 40 hectares near the Montbré forest was considered an ideal setting. A rare unit area in the Champagne region, it has become a place for experimenting with vitiforestry - applying agroforestry techniques to the vine. Planting trees in the middle or around the plots, cultivating in layers, or developing assisted natural regeneration: there exist various agricultural practices. These techniques can regenerate the soil, preserve water, sequester carbon, and safeguard biodiversity. Multiple stakeholders are also involved in the territory.

Togo: a regenerative project for sustainable coffee and cocoa production

In Togo, the agroforestry project within the coffee and cocoa sectors initiated in 2019 has been renewed for 2021 and 2022. While 65,000 trees have taken root in 2021, the current season will see an additional 35,000 trees planted. Regenerative, the project aims to restore the environmental functions of cultivated plots while generating additional social and economic impact for local producers.

Mexico: supporting local vanilla production through agroforestry

In the northern Mexican state of Veracruz, nearly 92% of the forests have disappeared in fifty years to create agricultural land for intensive cattle and citrus production. As climate change increases the frequency and intensity of cyclones and droughts, the restoration of forest cover is a key issue for the preservation of biodiversity and the resilience of populations. It is in this context that Reforest'Action is partnering with the Asociación Mexicana de Bosques Comestibles (AMEBOSCO) to develop agroforestry in vanilla fields, of which Mexico is one of the world's largest producers.

In Malawi, agroforestry increases food and energy self-sufficiency for local communities

In Malawi, the agroforestry project financed by Reforest'Action and led on the field by the NGO Inter Aide aims at ensuring food subsistence and increasing the energy autonomy of local communities by integrating trees, sources of fruits and wood, around cultivated fields. With a strong community dimension, the project accompanies the farmers at each step of the creation of these agroforestry systems, from the production of trees in nurseries to their planting and maintenance. Designed to run for three years, the program aims to produce and plant a total of 300,000 trees in different villages in Lilongwe District.
