Cultivation of Palepou (Bactris gasipaes) to stimulate agroforestry and prevent land erosion in Lespansie
The aims of this project are to re-introduce the cultivation of this unique palm species to the community of Lespansie. Cultivation of this palm in various areas of the community, including the Lespansie nature park (previous SGP project), will help with the prevention of land erosion. Additionally, the fruits from this palm are also eaten and sold, hence creating economic opportunities for community members.
