Slash-and-burn subsistence farming, practiced widely in the tropics by 300 million families adds over 2 billion tons of carbon to the atmosphere every year – more than all global transport combined. Once cleared of trees, burned, and exposed to the strong tropical climate, the bare soil loses nutrients and erodes quickly. Within 2 years, crops fail and families resort to clearing fresh areas of rainforest every few years just to survive.
We have an innovative, scalable solution to the urgent problems of food insecurity, saving rainforests and reducing atmospheric carbon levels. From years of scientific research,  Mike Hands identified that alley-cropping (planting trees in rows with the crops planted in-between) with nitrogen-fixing Inga trees maintains soil fertility and ensures good harvests every year. This system breaks the slash-and-burn cycle, allowing families to gain long-term food security on a single plot of land (saving rainforests, wildlife habitats, protecting watersheds and soil). Led by Honduran foresters and field managers, the Inga team has planted nearly 2 million trees in the last 6 years, transforming the lives and landscapes of over 240 families. Within 2 years, a family gains lasting food security and they pay it forward by helping new families with their alleys.

Impact

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
Over 240 families now sustain themselves on their original land plots by growing organic nourishing food (beans, maize, rice) and cash crops like pineapple, turmeric, vanilla, and pepper. Since the first year of recruiting families the demand for trees has far exceeded the supply. Inga alley-cropping is not just a system which saves rainforests, sequesters carbon, protects water sources/reefs/marine wildlife by preventing erosion, and provides firewood; it is a simple yet integrated, agroforestry ecosystem that provides an organic, sustainable means for subsistence families to be food secure.  Families who have planted Inga alleys have increased incomes, improved livelihoods, a more nutritious diet (to help combat stunting) and a resilience that works in harmony with their resources.

What’s next

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
Mike Hands and the Honduran team are working hard to provide seedlings, plants, and support for more families for the low-input, debt-free system. The simple but revolutionary system of Inga alley-cropping is not just an alternative to slash-and-burn; it is a solution to stopping it altogether. The model has become a farmer-to-farmer movement which we want to scale to the entire tropics.

la agricultura de tala y quema, practicada comúnmente en los trópicos por 300 millones de familias, arroja 2 billones de toneladas de dióxido de carbono a la atmósfera cada año – más de que todos los medios de transporte juntos. Una vez que se cortan y se queman los árboles, dejan la tierra expuesta al fuerte clima tropical, ésta se erosiona y pierde rápidamente sus nutrientes. Al cabo de 2 años las cosechas fallan y cada pocos años las familias se ven abocadas a talar nuevas áreas de bosque tropical para sobrevivir.
Tenemos una solución innovadora y escalable para atajar el apremiante problema de la escasez de alimento, salvar el bosque tropical y reducir los niveles de dióxido de carbono en la atmósfera. Después de años de investigación científica, Mike Hands identificó que la plantación en pasillos de árboles Inga que fijan el nitrógeno (plantados en filas intercaladas con las filas de cosecha) mantienen la fertilidad de la tierra, asegurando buenas cosechas cada año. Este sistema rompe el ciclo de tala y quema, permitiendo que las familias  tengan seguridad de alimentos a largo plazo, a partir de una misma zona de siembra (salvando el bosque tropical, los hábitats de la vida salvaje, atrayendo lluvias y protegiendo la tierra). Liderados por las autoridades de protección forestal de Honduras, el equipo de Inga ha plantado casi 2 millones de árboles en los últimos 6 años, transformando las vidas y el paisaje de unas 240 familias. En un plazo de 2 años, una familia se asegura el alimento de forma perdurable y lo pagan ayudando a otras familias a plantar nuevas hileras de árboles.

Impacto

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
Unas 240 familias ya se autoabastecen con sus trozos de tierra originales, cosechando alimentos orgánicos y nutritivos (judías, maíz, arroz) y ganan dinero con cosechas como piña, cúrcuma, vainilla, y pimienta. Desde el primer año, la demanda de árboles por parte de familias que se unían al proyecto ha excedido con mucho nuestra capacidad de suministro. El sistema Inga de plantación en pasillos no solo salva el bosque tropical, además secuestra dióxido de carbono, protege los acuíferos/arrecifes/la vida marina impidiendo la erosión, y provee de madera como combustible; es un método simple aunque integral de explotación del sistema agroforestal, que otorga a las familias un modo sostenible de asegurar sus alimentos.  Las familias que han plantado los pasillos Inga han incrementado sus ingresos y mejorado su nivel de vida, con una dieta más nutritiva (que ayuda a combatir el retraso en el crecimiento) fortaleciéndose en armonía con sus recursos.

Qué es lo siguiente que van a hacer

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
Mike Hands y su equipo hondureño se están esforzando en suministrar semillas, plantas y apoyo para que más familias con bajos ingresos encuentren un sistema que les libere de las deudas. El sistema Inga simple pero revolucionario de plantación en pasillos no es solo una alternativa la tala y quema; es una solución para acabar con esa práctica. Este modelo se ha convertido en un movimiento que se propague de agricultor a agricultor y queremos que se extienda por todas las zonas tropicales.

En síntesis

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
Este sistema acaba con el ciclo de tala y quema, y otorga a las familias un modo sostenible de asegurar sus alimentos cultivando el mismo trozo de tierra (salvando el bosque tropical, los hábitats de la vida salvaje, atrayendo lluvias y protegiendo la tierra).

在热带地区,三亿家庭的刀耕火种,每年产生二十多亿吨的碳排放 – 超过全球运输的排放总和。一旦树木被砍掉、焚烧,裸露的土壤暴露在强烈的热带气候中,会失去养分并迅速腐蚀。在两年内,农作物失收,为了生存,各个家庭只能每隔几年便开发新的热带雨林 。
他们的成就:我们有一个创新的,可扩展的方案,解决粮食短缺、拯救雨林和减少大气碳含量的紧迫问题。经过多年的科学研究,Mike Hands认定了条带种植 (在各行树木间种植农作物),选用有固氮作用的印加树,能维持土壤肥沃,确保年年丰收。这个系统打破了“砍伐与焚烧”的恶性循环,家庭在一块土地上就能获得长期的粮食保障(拯救了热带雨林、野生动物栖息地、保护流域和土壤)。Inga团队在洪都拉斯林务员和林场经理的带领下,在过去六年内种了将近二百万棵树,改变了240多个家庭的生活和景观。在两年内,一个家庭就能获得持久的粮食保障,这种食品安全知识和所带来的好处可以不断的在家庭之间和社区之间相传。

所带来的变化

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
超过240个家庭现在已经能在原有土地上自给自足。他们种植有机而且营养丰富的粮食(豆、粟米、稻米)和菠萝、姜黄、 香草和胡椒等经济作物。自第一年开始招募家庭以来,对树木的需求远远超过了供应量。用印加树的条带种植不仅是一个拯救热带雨林,隔离碳,并且通过防止侵蚀,保护水源/珊瑚礁/海洋野生动物及提供薪柴的系统。这是一个简单而完整的农林复合生态系统,为以农业维持生计的家庭提供一种有机的、可持续的途径得到粮食保障。参与印加树条带种植的家庭增加了收入,改善了生活,得到营养更丰富的饮食,预防了发育不良的情况。

下一步计划

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
Mike Hands与洪都拉斯团队正努力为更多的家庭提供幼苗和植株,让他们参与这个低成本、免债务的系统。印加树条带种植这个简单而又具有革命性的系统,不仅仅是取代了砍伐与焚烧的方式,还是一个一并根治的方案。它已成为农民之间相传的模式,我们还想把它扩大到整个热带地区。
