Explaining how our partners ensure the safeguarding of indigenous communities
This question applies primarily to our projects operated by Eden Reforestation Projects around the world.
In order for a planting site to be developed, the native population must have explicitly agreed to the project and must benefit from the project in its entirety.
With planting in Madagascar, the project is done with permission from the owners of the indigenous land, in conjunction with the government.
Local communities benefit from many aspects of the project, such as 2.4 million work days that have been created, access to fruit harvesting, and many other economic benefits of restoring deforested land.
