The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement of 2015 both require that we reinvent our agriculture methodologies. Agricultural emissions have to be reduced, carbon needs to be stored back in the ground while simultaneously biodiversity loss, desertification, and land degradation issues need to be addressed.
With the earth's growing population, the agricultural sector is under pressure to find ways of increasing food production while promoting environmental enhancement.
We believe that agrosilvopastoral systems using chickens have the potential to produce more food, store CO2, increase biodiversity and restore degraded land while not reducing a farmer’s income (it may even increase it). These system will support rural families and create a more livable landscape for humans and animals.
In addition agrosilvipastoral systems contribute to 9 out of 17 Sustainable Development Goals as defined by the United Nations General Assembly.
