Vichada Reforestation Project

Colombia
In the Vichada region of Colombia, the poor density of the savannah is due to decades of livestock farming practices. The objective of the project is to develop high-quality hardwood forests while stabilizing or restoring fragile and degraded areas. In addition to carbon sequestration through reforestation, the project provides social and environmental benefits to the area and local communities.
