Silvopastoralism is a sustainable agricultural system that combines trees in grasslands. Trees can provide additional forage and fertilize pastures while improving the ecological impact and biodiversity of the production system (few or no chemical inputs, soil cover, water filtration, etc.).
Dairy production is one of the main agricultural productions in the Nariño department and one of the main causes of the extension of agricultural areas to the detriment of moors, in particular. It is therefore important to be able to offer an alternative and sustainable production model to dairy farmers. The potential is immense with more than 40, 000 small milk producers in Nariño.
Impulso Verde signed a cooperation agreement with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), in association with the UNAD, to roll out a pilot project. This program is complementary to the community reforestation program of Impulso Verde, since the Impulso Verde’s nursery network will be able to supply the trees necessary for the implementation of this sustainable model.
