Through its Agroforestry division, ETICWOOD is committed to fighting against forest degradation and improving the well-being of local populations by the structuring of viable, responsible and innovative sectors.
These resources are countless and their use is diverse: some are known and widely exploited, others less so, and still a certain mystery surrounds an incalculable range of products with unknown, or almost unknown, potential...
The sectors that Eticwood seeks to develop are varied in nature, and may involve products such as cocoa, coffee or NTFPs such as spices, nuts, hazelnuts etc.
The watchwords governing the creation of these sectors are:
The organisation of communities around these sectors that value local knowledge makes it possible to guarantee a positive future for the ecosystem by using a dual approach:
Conservation of biodiversity
Diversification and creation of new sources of income for local and indigenous communities.
To secure a place on the market for these premium products, ETICWOOD created ECOCOA.
