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.

A forest school to develop agroforestery models in Madagascar

Faced with one of the world’s worst environmental crises, Madagascar has lost 44% of its forest cover in just 60 years. L’École de la forêt, or forest school, was founded in partnership with Siel Bleu and 2400 Sourires and teaches children about environmental professions while promoting mindful and sustainable agriculture to help slow down climate change.
