Agriculture in all its forms is the primary driver of deforestation in tropical areas. The issue has become widely international with the various initiatives to fight against this deforestation (zero value chains deforestation, fight against imported deforestation, etc.). Agroforestry is a farming method that combines trees, crops or livestock. It has considerable advantages, particularly in the fields of soil protection and biodiversity conservation, insofar as the tree has an agro-economic function within the production system and is therefore preserved there. This system also actively participates in the fight against deforestation by directly involving the populations.
Agroforestry can indeed constitute excellent opportunities for forest companies (compensatory reforestation, renewal of a resource, establishment of partnerships with other actors, diversification of economic activities, etc.).
