The Paris agreement has created a strong energy and mobilization against climate change. Many news and initiatives reinforce this feeling since the beginning of 2016. Now it is time to act concretely to make this agreement historic for climate.
Trees are PUR Projet’s main tool for action, and the PUR Lab just came up with some ncouraging study results: in our projects in Peru, planting trees has allowed a 78 % reduction of soil erosion. Erosion can be avoided, it’s a challenge to take up, in particular through insetting via agroforestry at landscape level, our battle-cry, whether with PUR Projet or IPI, the International Platform for Insetting, which we contributed to create and which is now experiencing a renewed interest.
Winter is planting season in French and European projects, and time for monitoring 2015 plantings in tropical zones, from Colombia to Thailand passing by Ethiopia, we assess trees recovery and prepare the next steps. Our activity is accelerating and also diversifying, with a new and innovating project of coral restoration in Indonesia, and mangrove planting in Thailand. With our partners, we are interested in the regeneration of all types of ecosystems. Because everywhere, those are very degraded in both environmental and social terms. We want to help companies to connect harmoniously with the ecosystem they depend upon, for their own benefit, for local populations, for the living and for future generations.
We hope you enjoy reading our newsletter, and see you very soon to continue building together tomorrow’s society, thanks to the “rewilding” of the Earth. We all need more nature, whether for the future of human activities or for our well-being. And more than ever, #MayTheForestBeWithYou!
