Reforestation in Colombia

In 2013 the Ernesto Illy Foundation, in collaboration with the Federación Nacional de Cafeteros and Cenicafé in Colombia, launched a project that has seen a partial reforestation in the region of Tamara (Colombia) with native trees near water springs. The reforestation project took place in an area suitable for the production of coffee, but with important environmental problems.

During the first phase of the project, methodologies and species and areas of interest to be reforested were identified. The initiative was communicated at a local level, obtaining a wide radius of interest.

The second phase of the project, which began in 2016 and ended in 2019, aimed at strengthening the environmental and production aspects in order to improve the quality of life of coffee-producing families in the rural area of the municipalities of Támara and Nunchía (Casanare) in Colombia.

Direct beneficiaries: 80 families of coffee growers.
Indirect beneficiaries: 320 people belonging to the community Tamara.
