Close to the Monegros desert in Spain, co-financed by the European Union’s LIFE+ program, the Operation CO2 project is being executed. The agroforestry program within the project concerns the planting of varying tree species in a certain way, such that alternating lines of these trees and other crops like cereals or grasses are formed. This method ensures that the plants are better protected against animals, plagues and other natural hazards like fires and strong winds.

Operation CO2 is a public project that uses new and innovative forms of agriculture and, as a consequence, is capable of boosting the local economy.
