Trees for All, a Dutch charitable organization, has included in its catalog of projects to collaborate with the Scolel'te Program, with the aim of planting more than 71,000 trees as part of its strategies to address climate change mitigation mechanisms and the loss of biodiversity.
A part of the Trees for All organization team visited three ejidos located in the Frailescana Natural Resources Protection Area, in the municipality of Villacorzo, Chiapas in order to learn about the impact of the Scolel'te program in this work zone, and interact with the farmers of the communities.
Trees for All as organization works hand to hand with various organizations worldwide, such as AMBIO, with the aim of restoring forests in danger of extinction and helping farmers on their way to sustainable agroforestry, among other activities with an environmental impact.
The localities visited were: Juan Sabines Guerrero, Santa Isabel and La Bonanza (municipality of Villacorzo). During the visit, they learned about the areas that are being restored, the nurseries where the plant is being produced for these areas, and plots were visited that can be registered in the program as agroforestry systems.
When visiting these communities, Trees for All was able to verify that the resources received by the communities contributes to the restoration of areas degraded by agricultural production and helps to transition to the cultivation of products with better ecosystem impacts, such as the cultivation of coffee, which also has a local market. Trees for All commented that what they have seen in the field contributes to being able to transmit to partners and financiers the needs of these ejidos, and to know what type of activities could contribute being financed.
