Soil regeneration – food security – resource management: a long-term and sustainable way out of poverty for rural farmer families

In order to regenerate depleted soils, newTree supports rural farmers in agroforestry. newTree also builds enhanced cooking stoves with women to economize up to 60% of wood. The protection of trees has a huge impact on the lifes of the farmer families.

Arboles y Futuro

Creating perspectives in the bolivian Andes – from reforestation to timber products in rural communities and environmental education in elementary schools.

Rural communities, groups with interests in forestry or individual families take part in building the wood chain. They learn to protect trees, cultivate reforestated areas and bring wood and non-wood products to market. Building new forests, they protect at the same time their agricultural areas against soil and wind erosion.

Verein Tany

Permapartner is active in Madagascar. It supports small-scale farmers in transforming their farms into permaculture sites. This improves harvests, reduces their land use, the need for slash and burn activities and ends erosion damage. Through this, they indirectly protect the last natural forests in Madagascar by reducing the farmer’s incentive to clear them.

ADES

ADES Project - Tree nursery

ADES promotes energy-efficient ovens and solar cookers in Madagascar to fight deforestation. In addition, for each ADES device sold, 2 trees are planted in a project initiated and controlled by ADES. Each device saves, on average, 0.5 hectares of woodland.
