Brazil has lost approximately 85 million hectares of native forest due to deforestation. The process of reforestation is often quite fragmented, with a lack of knowledge exchange between academia and implementers as well as a scarcity of skilled labor.
Assobio works together with the local community, involving them in the process of planting and maintaining the forest. The social business provides education and training opportunities for the most disadvantaged people in the local community.
Assobio replants areas of forest, maintaining native seedlings as well as providing forest monitoring services and the creation of private reserves. They have preserved over 200,000 hectares.
