Shayarina Resilient Forest Project
Iyarina is a multi-use forest land trust located on the south bank of the Rio Napo. Its mission is to simultaneously maximize biodiversity and productivity so as to sustain the wellbeing of the forest and communities who work there. We do this by integrating indigenous knowledge and evidence based agro-forestry.
Success will be measured by
