Coffee and Cocoa agroforestry Program in Amazonia, Peru

Coffee and cocoa agroforestry program in the Peruvian Amazon

2021-09-17T22:56:49+02:0013/08/2020|

The “Coffee and cocoa agroforestry in Amazonia” program aims to restore the ecological balance of the zones covered, support the families of those Peruvian growers involved in the field projects and to strengthen sustainability of the coffee/cocoa industries.

The project is based on the development of agroforestry models through planting a variety of native timber, fruit and other beneficial trees on plots dedicated to coffee and cocoa production or areas degraded by agriculture. 

The search for sustainable economic alternatives together with awareness raising activities both seek to preserve the last surviving wooded areas and to limit migratory farming which is the chief cause of deforestation in these areas.

The program is being jointly implemented with five co-operatives of coffee and cocoa growers. They are involved on a daily basis in the planning and execution of project activities providing both financial and technical support.
