Forest Plantations and Agroforestry with Cocoa and Coffee Cooperatives
Located in the San Martin region, this project directly benefits 3,200 growers of cocoa and coffee plantations, members of agricultural cooperatives Acopagro and Oro Verde, by offering training programs and technical assistance to complement the reforestation of their estates.
In strategic alliance with French partners Alter Eco / Pur Projet, we aim to foster the development of sustainable forestry businesses, within the purview of fair trade, that improve living standards for small growers of cocoa and coffee. Cooperatives strengthen trading relations with international organic and fair trade markets. They finance annual production for 1’200,000 forest seedlings, training and technical assistance in developing inclusive forestry-based businesses by implementing payments for environmental services (PES).
