Project description:

Sustainable Agroforestry Mozambique



The SAM Programme is a model international partnership between local forest concessioners, ad-hoc Community Based Organizations (CBOs) of local forest dwellers, and ENVIRONOMICA.

The SAM Programme aims to support the transition of activities within the areas of implementation into multi-level sustainable operation by way of disseminating know-how, empowering communities, incentivizing sustainability best practices within certified markets, and stimulating regional inclusive green growth.

The primary goals of the SAM Programme are:

(a) to responsibly produce and selling agroforestry products,
(b) to foster nature conservation by way of enhancing socio-technical capabilities of local communities, and
(c) to enter international markets through sustainability certification.

To further the SAM Programme ENVIRONOMICA sends out a call to prospect partners and donors. Please, visit our Support page if you wish to make a donation or contact us for detailed info and terms of partnership.
