About the Diana Project

In Madagascar, between 50,000 to 100,000 hectares of forests are destroyed each year, contributing to soil erosion and loss of biodiversity. The Diana Project in Ambanja, Madagascar aims to restore ecosystems and mitigate the effects of climate change.


By diversifying the production of vanilla, farmers’ resilience to climate change is strengthened through the planting of shade trees. Agroforestry models are implemented through the Diana Project, helping to limit deforestation and restore degraded ecosystems by planting trees across the region.

Implementing agroforestry models since 2017 and in partnership with BĂ´ndy, trees are planted across the Ambanja region to help limit deforestation and restore degraded ecosystems.
