trees planted


Farmers of the Cauca and Nariño Departments are exposed to strong erosion accompanied by landslides, and suffer from growing water scarcity. Associated farmers are highly dependent on coffee production, complemented with milk and meat production. The project, in partnership with the Federación Nacional de Cafeteros (FNC), aims at planting trees inside and outside coffee farms, to secure, increase and diversify their revenues while preserving freshwater springs of the valley.
