Agroforestry Entrepeneurship

Agroforestry Entrepreneurship

NGO’s all over Africa, Latin America and Asia proudly show lushly green kitchen gardens. However that only a small percent of arable land is used by farmers to grow trees; leaving two billion hectares of degraded arable land unexploited. Our goal: men, woman and young farmers earn a living from growing trees.

  • Feasibility studies to scale-up agroforestry, including historical analyses, multi-actor mapping, identification of major social groups and their particular entrepreneurial agroforestry models.
  • De FarmTree® Tool for quantitative analysis of agroforestry systems. With this simple-to-use modeling tool,  farmers can make simple business plans that help to develop their land into agroforestry-based enterprises and which can be used to gain access to medium-term loans.
