NICARAGUA

The program works with local cooperatives to strengthen their business administration and establish innovative silvopastoral systems, which increase production and profitability while protecting and restoring forest areas.

OUR PARTNERS

Silvopastoral systems contribute to the conservation of soil and additional feed for livestock, reducing livestock expansion into natural areas and gaining resilience to climate change.

Ranching in Nicaragua represents an important economic sector of the country. In 2017, more than a fourth of the exports came from cattle, including the dairy and beef sector. However, this sector is extremely vulnerable to changing weather patterns and current production is below potential levels. Through the adoption of silvopastoral systems, local cooperatives and model farms will scale these practices to improve the quality and quantity of production, stabilize these production cycles during scarce dry periods, and strengthen local producers resilience in the face of climate change.
