Billion Agave Project – Regeneration International UNCCD COP15 Side Event

We held a side event at UNCCD COP15 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire speaking on how the agave-based agroforestry can regenerate degraded arid and semi-arid landscapes. This strategy combines the growing of agave plants and nitrogen-fixing companion treespecies (such as mesquite), with holistic rotational grazing of livestock. The result is a high-biomass, high forage-yielding system that works well even on degraded, semi-arid lands.
