Support for sustainable agriculture
Improving the sustainability of local farming practices such as cocoa, will help boost local incomes, decrease rates of forest loss, and protect important habitat corridors for endangered species. We will sign conservation contracts with local farmers and help organize them into local cooperatives and provide support for processing and marke- ting their produce to help ensure more of the value is delivered back to the farmer. By protecting local forests and promoting sustainable agriculture, the PAPFor project will work to safeguard traditional livelihoods and food security for local communities.
