Consulting firm specialising in the environment, agriculture, forestry and rural development
The lives of 1.6 billion people directly depend on forest ecosystems. It is one of the reasons why we support the implementation of sustainable management of forest resources.
To address the global issue of supplying forest products, nearly 5 million hectares of forests are replanted each year. We support the formulation and implementation of projects of forest plantations and agroforestry plantations.
Over 90% of people in developing countries depend on wood as an energy source... But deforestation extends, fossil fuels are becoming more and more expensive and the greenhouse effect worsens: three good reasons why we support the use of wood as a renewable energy source.
One in nine people in the world is undernourished. To end world hunger by 2030 is the second sustainable development Goal of the UN. Developing countries need, more than ever, strong and ambitious agricultural policies. We participate in this effort.
Development projects have often tried to bring happiness to peasants in spite of themselves. By strengthening their agricultural professionalisation, we help them to reposition themselves at the heart of the action.
Supporting the development of a local territory, or supporting the development of a local industry? In the "world village", where trade is increasingly globalised, the chain approach is relevant and we follow it.
Could a second Green Revolution stop hunger in the world? Probably not! A new context, novel answer: it's time to innovate. We closely follow the agricultural innovations in order to promote their rapid diffusion.
17% of global greenhouse gas emissions, but also effective carbon pumps: rainforests are both part of the problem and part of the solution. We work with the deployment of REDD+.
In 2006, the Stern report estimated that climate change is a serious global threat. Since then, the IPCC has been constantly reassessing the level of this threat and recommending an urgent response ! We help countries to act.
Protecting forests is fighting against the greenhouse effect, but also preserving biodiversity, water resources, soil fertility, producing timber: that is why we use the carbon finance to support the design and implementation of forestry projects.
The Paris climate Agreement in 2015 showed that international negotiations were complex, sometimes difficult but essential ! Much remains to be done, but we believe in the possibility of collective and concerted action and we support developing countries in this regard.
