Successful presentation at European Agroforestry Conference

03.06.2016 By: Transfer LBC

On behalf of our Life project Sven Kallen (Transfer LBC) and Egbert Sonneveld (Beral) presented a paper on the agroforestry experience in Ayoó de Vidriales (Area B), in Montpellier during the 3rd European Agroforestry Conference, organised by EURAF. You can see the programme here

During the session "Farmers testimony across Europe", we presented an overview of the main issues of desertification in Spain and how agroforestry can form a solution. We also showed the regreening video summary which gave a good overview of the terrain and issues at stake. The presentation was received very positively by the audience.

We later participated in field visits in Montpellier and Toulouse where a number of interesting agroforestry initiatives have been developing for years. New contacts and project ideas will surely find their way to our LIFE project Operation CO2.
