Our association was created with the aim of promoting good agricultural practices to better safeguard the environment and protect natural resources, such as forests and species threatened by human actions. To achieve our objectives, we conduct research in the agronomic and environmental fields, and assist local populations by raising awareness of good agricultural practices and how to safeguard the environment.
