Action for climate change and rural development in developing countries
Founding Year: 2014
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
TroFaCo offers effective, easy to see and immediately sensible action that contributes towards solving two key global challenges: Climate Change and Rural Development in developing countries.
TroFaCo works with organised farmers in tropical countries, which ensures that the benefits go to local communities. Communities can use trees and they supply the kinds of trees the communities want. TroFaCo sells the climate mitigation and builds trust with customers through direct, inexpensive, credible reporting on a homepage, with geo-referenced pictures. Direct contacts to communities and their innovative reporting ensure low costs and provide sustainability.
Tree planting benefits the environment and when local persons and societies gain development benefits from the tree planting improvements becomes longer-term lasting.
