Description

The project is planting teak trees on degraded land in the states of Tabasco, Chiapas and Campeche, in the south of the United States of Mexico. Part of the areas will be used for sustainable commercial purposes and part will be protected conservation areas to allow wildlife and biodiversity to thrive.<br /> 

Context

Employment in rural Mexico, particularly in the south, is often informal, uncertain and relies heavily on the agricultural sector. However, extensive livestock farming has led to land degradation, deforestation and loss of wildlife habitat. This project aims to restore the land and create stable job opportunities, in line with legal standards, in order to transform the long-term prosperity of the region.

Benefits

The project is driving significant economic development in a sustainable way by creating new jobs for local people, training them in forest management and creating a supply chain of teak wood. As the trees grow not only do they sequester carbon dioxide, helping to mitigate global warming, by biodiversity, soil quality and water conservation are enhanced.
