Agroforsa is a small development consulting firm devoted to green growth — conservation and management of natural resources, sustainable agricultural and rural sector economic growth, and adaptation to climate change — throughout Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). We help our clients to understand complex interrelated social, economic and environmental systems, building mutual trust, and creating policies, incentives systems and institutions to enable sustainable and scalable development.
Our development model integrates market systems and partnerships, environmental sustainability, poverty reduction and social inclusion. Agroforsa opens up opportunities for people in rural communities to participate more effectively in the marketplace and in public decisions to manage forests, watersheds, wetlands and related land and water resources, for the benefit of both present and future generations.
Agroforsa collaborates with local partners to conduct studies, design and implement programs, communicate insights and good practices, and carry out monitoring, evaluation, research and learning. We accompany them; we don’t replace them. We help local stakeholders to discover for themselves how to adapt good practices to local settings and resources in a changing world of nature and markets.
