EU GCCA+ Fridays for Climate | The importance of nature-based solutions 🌿

The EU GCCA+ Agro Floresta project in Cape Verde is introducing agroecology techniques among the local communities. 🌍 One of these techniques is called “nests" and consists of protecting fruit trees with straw or sugarcane bagasse.

The “nests” have several purposes like keeping moisture in soil, protecting from the wind, or feeding the soil. 🌾 The Agro Floresta project is implementing agroecological activities aiming at:

  • Combatting desertification through agroecological techniques and contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation.
  • Reporting agricultural production for climate-smart food production systems; 🌽
  • Improving the quality of life of rural populations by improving agricultural productivity, agricultural incomes, and reducing inequalities.
