Win-win partnership
Since 2003, the Gohapin tribe and WWF have been engaged in a partnership to promote sustainable development based on the preservation, restoration and enhancement of the tribe's exceptional natural heritage, with particular attention to the forest massif of l'Aoupinié. One of the key objectives was to valorize native tree species for the purposes of forest restoration and silvicultural plantations. In 2007, the first nursery was created and today results in a park of twelve structures reaching an annual production capacity of 25,000 plants. Nurserymen have been trained in composting and making liquid manure so as not to use chemicals. Today everyone knows how to improve the substrate to ensure quality plants.
Several objectives
- The conservation and ecological restoration of the forest heritage of the tribe.
- Promotion of local species for their silvicultural, ornamental or ecological interest.
- The development and maintenance of a professional activity, allowing nurserymen to also sell outside the tribe.
- Sharing the experience acquired in Gohapin for the benefit of other project promoters in the area.
This A5 booklet was notably developed to promote, enhance and perpetuate the social-ecological benefits of this partnership.
