The goal: to support small farmers
We support an initiative of Bolivian smallholders. The initiative reforests degraded areas on the small farmers' farms with a mixture of native tree species appropriate to the location. In this way, the fallow land is upgraded for the smallholders and sustainable ecological forestry is made possible.
The place: Bolivian highlands
More than 15 percent of the project area are designated as nature reserves and offer permanent total reserves for the native flora and fauna. By setting up community businesses, the initiative supports the smallholders in selling the precious woods they produce together, which creates long-term income for the smallholders and is intended to ensure a valuable contribution to the sustainable development of the project region.
Our partner: Co2ol
The Bonn agency Cool coordinates the project and organizes for Betterwood CO2 certificate trading. In this way, the CO2 emissions that are emitted during imports from our containers are completely compensated.
