Appropriate reforestation for sustainable forests
The “Fairventures worldwide” project
Fairventures develops and carries out large-scale reforestation projects in the tropics. Intelligent agroforestry systems and modern technologies are combined to create sustainable forests where the local community can live well, and actors from global value creation chains can contribute to reforestation, improved biodiversity and the protection of the climate. The entire approach is oriented towards demand: in cooperation with the private sector, reforestation projects are planned in such a way that financially attractive raw materials are produced. Partnerships are formed with the communities on the ground in order to develop and test adequate, local solutions. These solutions range from reforestation with species of trees that grow quickly, to sustainable wood production and other forestry products, to integrated agroforestry. This creates new ways for the people on the ground to earn an income. Fairventures projects and products offer added value along the entire value creation chain, while at the same time working to combat climate change.
