Agroecology and fight against deforestation

The Miombo forest close to the National Reserve of Gilé (province of Zambezia) is imminently threatened by slash-and-cut farming.

Since 2014, in order to fight against the degradation of the forest, the project intends to bring about sustainable economic and social development in favour of the neighbouring populations. Thanks to an agricultural model based on the practices of agroecology, natural resources are protected and revenue is produced for the local families.

The project enables 8 communities to create their own group for the common management of the area’s natural resources. It also contributes to disseminate practices against deforestation and land degradation, as well as to establish local value-added production sectors.

All development actions take place in close cooperation with the local communities.
