Climate change and slash-and-burn clearances threaten the Amazon rainforest in Bolivia – and thus the livelihood of the local population. Because people depend on an intact rainforest to make a sustainable living in the long term. Caritas shows small farmer families how, by using agroforestry instead of slash-and-burn, they can generate sufficient yields on the existing arable land and at the same time protect the forest.
