International Day of Forests

 21 March 2023
International Day of Forests

On this International Day of Forests, the Kiwa #POLFN regional project participated in an event organized in Fiji to promote #Agroforestry.

This practice, that combines trees, crops and/or animals on the same agricultural plot and allows a better use of resources and greater biological diversity, is one of technologies that the farms selected in the POLFN project will use in #Fiji, #Nauru, #Tonga and the #Solomon islands."

Organic agriculture can contribute to the health of trees by promoting soil health and biodiversity, reducing the use of synthetic chemicals and pesticides, and enhancing nutrient cycling.Trees rely on healthy soil to grow and thrive, and organic agriculture practices focus on building soil health by using natural soil amendments such as compost and cover crops. These practices can improve soil structure, water retention, and nutrient availability, which can promote healthy tree growth and reduce the risk of diseases and pests."
