Our Job

Ranching in Nicaragua represents an important economic sector of the country. In 2017, more than ¼ 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.
