PRESENTATION

A PROGRAM WITH MULTIPLE IMPACTS

With the support of the French NGO Up2green and its local partner VIKALP (accredited by The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – UNFCCC and The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification – UNCCD), 10 330 fruit and forest trees were handed over to 215 families to be planted between July and September 2019.

All these volunteer families, spread over 13 villages, have signed a planting agreement on the land they own and are therefore beneficiaries of the TEAMWORK programme. They will be supervised and monitored for 5 years by Himanshu Banker, VIKALP’s administrator-manager, at the end of which the trees will become their property.

The benefits of the program supported by TEAMWORK are wide-reaching, from socio-economic to educational and environmental.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

A PROGRAMME IN LINE WITH THE "SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES" OF THE UNITED NATIONS AND UNESCO

The program we are funding entirely meets 3 of the 17 “Sustainable Development Goals” adopted in 2015 by a large number of Heads of State and Government, senior UN officials and representatives of civil society during the 70th session of the UN General Assembly, in which UNESCO actively participates:

  • No poverty
  • Measures to face climate change
  • Terrestrial life

Socio-economic and educational benefits

Benefits for local families

Rehabilitation of their land and therefore the soil

Economic resources

Generate economic resources through the sale of cultivated / harvested fruits, which can themselves enable these families to access a diversified diet, the schooling of their children. All of which leads to the development of a whole circular ecosystem.

Technical knowledge

Acquire technical knowledge to be able to develop future projects in an autonomous and sustainable way. Awareness and education of current and future generations about environmental and economic issues on their territories.

Environmental benefits

Ecology at the heart of our concerns

CO2 storage

Biodiversity conservation

Management and protection of water resources

Take action

CSR & eco-responsibility

To raise the bar even higher in terms of CSR and eco-responsible, TEAMWORK has chosen to finance a community reforestation and agroforestry programme for 10 000 trees in India’s Tapi District, Gujarat State Province.
