Farming for Biodiversity

Reforestamos Mexico

Entry Overview

The deforestation in Michoacan, due to the increase of the plantations of avocado, is a subject that demands immediate action on the part of the authorities and the society. The threat to our forests is a threat to the very life that develops around them, this includes avocado plantations.
The use of avocado through sustainable schemes that increase productivity while promoting the conservation and restoration of forest areas is imperative to achieve the economic benefits of this crop. Conscious of the importance of sustainable avocado production for forests, Reforestamos Mexico seeks to promote the design and implementation of business models in Uruapan, one of the municipalities in Michoacan with greater avocado production and land use changes, looking a balance between economic, social and environmental benefits.
