Research project with ETHZ

The research fund ETH for Development (ETH4D) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich is financing a research project with arboRise. ForDev – the research institute for forest management in the context of development – will study the social impact of our work in Guinea during three field missions: both the visible effects and possible collateral damage or benefits. In this way, we want to discover new possibilities to strengthen the sustainability of our activities by better understanding which local socio-cultural characteristics can favour or prevent reforestation. ForDev has developed a specific and collaborative methodology to study stakeholder interactions in development projects related to forests, especially tropical forests.  This research by ETH4D is in line with arboRise’s commitment to adopt an ethical and people-friendly approach at all times.
