Support for local inhabitants through agroforestry
The 300 trees planted by SQLI are part of a larger agroforestry project (which now includes over 30,000 trees) that benefits a significant number of rural Moroccan villages by promoting self-sufficiency, economic growth, and food security.
Reforest'Action carries out its agroforestry activities with the help of SQLI in collaboration with the local organisation Ibn Al Baytar.
Fruit trees that thrive in the Moroccan environment
The trees planted were chosen for their climate compatibility (lemon trees, olive trees, date palm trees, and carob trees), as well as the protective cover they give for the food crops planted around them. Food is collected and stored for consumption in rural villages, as well as being sold on local markets.
These plantations make it possible to:
- CO2 storage;
- Oxygen production;
- Biodiversity enhancement;
- Animal species protection through natural habitats;
- Creation of local jobs through the agroforestry project.
