Project Description
Forest restoration in degraded ecosystems with the presence of vegetation typical of degraded soils, enrichment of cocoa and coffee plots, agroforestry associations with native Amazonian fruit trees, forest massifs, afforestation in cities. Planting densities: 500 trees per hectare for Hevea, Brosiumun, Theobroma and 1000 trees per hectare for Guazuma, Calycophyllum and Ochroma. CIGDES guarantees the post-installation assistance of the plantations, which guarantees the undercutting and replanting of plants.
Ecological Benefits
-1,158,560 tons of CO2 equivalent captured by our trees. -10,924 hectares of habitats for endemic fauna. -5,200,000 treetops for bird rest. -Reduction of forest fires of around 12%. -Increase of the water flow in basins and micro basins. -Improved connectivity in wooded patches.
Community Benefits
-416,000 wages created by the project in the work of seedling production, installation, maintenance and non-timber forest use. -7,654 families directly benefited by the project. -93,600 kilograms of honey for family consumption and for the sale of surpluses. -Guarantee of a buyer for the sale of non-timber forest products such as latex from Hevea brasilienses, fresh seeds of Brosimun alicastrum, Theobroma bicolor and Theobroma grandiflorum. -Sovereignty and national security regarding the supply of raw materials for the rubber industry. -Reduction of anemia and child malnutrition, due to access to Brosimun alicastrum flour. -Improved nutrition and food safety, due to the consumption of majambo snacks, soft drinks and copoazu ice creams.
