Agroforestry is making a strong comeback in many forums and projects because of the benefits offered by this model. At the initiative of the actors of the Cité du Développement of Nogent sur Marne, a first meeting of the « agroforestry group » of the Cité took place on 25 April 2018 with the aim of meeting around a common theme: agroforestry. This first meeting was attended by ONFI, Kinomé, CIRAD, Fair Trade and ATIBT. This was followed in 2019 by a presence at the World Agroforestry Congress in Montpellier, which was very stimulating for the group.
This year, despite an unprecedented context, a meeting via Zoom was held on April 30, this time bringing together about 18 people, again mainly from the Cité, but also from other horizons.
A l’ordre du jour, nous avions deux interventions :
1- Eric Penot, moderated a power point presenting CIRAD’s projects for the year 2020.
The main points to emerge from it are as follows:
2- Elsa Sanial, led the presentation of the « Guide for forest companies to assist them in setting up agroforestry projects » carried out within the framework of the project « Integration of the tropical timber sector in Central and West Africa in the FLEGT and REDD+ mechanisms » led by ATIBT and financed by the FGEF.
