Water Forest Research 2019

Rosa Lopez Valentín and Nils McCune

The water forest effort looks to support campesino strategies for reforestation and water recovery in the Altos and Selva communities of the Chiapas.  This initial research marks our first step on the path toward finding solutions.

Rosa Lopez Valentín presents a practical approach for community water recovery and recharge of water tables through the implementation of community nurseries.

Nils McCune presents an outline of key concepts for the idea of reforestation-based water recovery as a practice in community water restoration. It proposes community knowledge as the foundation for the development of processes and curriculae in  soil conservation and reforestation.
