We are pleased to share with you our latest field missions over the last three months of 2014. As “a picture is worth a thousand words”, we offer you some pictures from around the world where have been working the PUR Projet team:
Project Liming -China
The ICRAF (World Agroforestry Centre) joins Clarins to contribute to the expertise provided on the Liming project in China. This initiative allows farmers to cultivate highly sought medicinal plants, thus reducing wild picking that led to the extinction of some species. The transmission of that knowledge in agroforestry also allows to increase the soil stability, a major challenge in this region.
Project Karnataka – India
The planting of these first trees marks the launch of this project. In partnership with small coffee producers in the Cauca region of Colombia, over 100,000 seedlings were distributed in December and the project will extend to the coffee region of Nariño in 2015.
Greening Australia – Australia
Potatoes production with Mousseline – France
Vittel – France
This producer monitors the plantations in the catchment area of Vittel in the Vosges. This monitoring is carried out in collaboration with Agrivair as part of the preparation for the next planting stage that will start in 2015.
The Bokasso cooperative focuses on the potential feasibility of agroforestry projects in coffee plantations of the Sidamo region. This project is being developed in partnership with the Louis Dreyfus Foundation.
World Economic Forum 2015 – Davos
On the occasion of the new edition of the Davos World Economic Forum, leaders of governments and businesses from around the world gathered in January to offer solutions around the theme of “new global context”. Tristan Lecomte, founder of Pur Projet has participated in a conference on insetting in the agricultural sectors. The Forum was also an opportunity for PUR Projet to launch a new application that enables people to plant and sponsor trees.
