Panama Canal Forest Cover

Project description

Former pasture land is restored through reforestation, agroforestry and silvopastoral activities, preserving the water and soil resources of the Panama Canal Watershed.
In addition to major climate change mitigation effects, the project reflects the nexus between world trade and a functioning environment. The sustainable management of the Panama Canal Watershed counteracts the damages caused by the expansion of the Canal and secures water supply. Targeting further environmental and social benefits, the project increases local biodiversity and due to active participation of local communities supports small subsistence farmers by providing sustainable means of production.
