Asia Plantation Capital welcomes the UN’s acknowledgment of Agroforestry as essential to global green development. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has required Agroforestry and Agriculture to be scaled up to resolve food deficiency and aid fulfill the obstacle of climate change.
The diversity amongst crops of plantation trees with intercropping of fruit, vegetable and other resource & consumable crops is viewed as a practical procedure to utilise land, preserve and enhance soil nutrition, increase food supply and help address rural poverty, malnutrition and local economic advancement. These smart words at the Third Global Conference on Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Security and Climate Modification held just recently in Johannesburg, were welcomed by Asia Plantation Capital.
Barry Rawlinson, CEO of Asia Plantation Capital, commented how “at Asia Plantation Capital we whole heartedly support this UN backed initiative. As a specialist plantation business operating in some economically challenged backwoods throughout Southeast Asia we have actively sort-out viable intercropping and extra food production chances. In Northeast Thailand for instance banana features greatly as an intercrop throughout the early life of both Teak and Aquilaria tree plantations, and we also motivate our regional plantation supervisors to grow vegetable and salad crops for their own and extended family needs.”.
This crucial event was organised jointly by the Governments of South Africa and the Netherlands and partly moneyed by the World Bank and the UN FAO. Prominent institutions representing a global technique to increase climate-smart and sustainable agricultural practices, as well as to sustain green growth.
Natural deposit Management is a core concern for Asia Plantation Capital. Their in-house competence not only covers plantation management & forestry skills on their developed operations in Thailand & Sri Lanka, with their expansion into other countries they have included in-house forest auditing and are in settlement with strategic universities to expand their Forestry R&D Partnerships into wider research study on the economic advantages and social impact of agroforestry.
“We have seen how our technique of grouping speciality plantations into clusters has offered a far higher financial enhancement to local neighborhoods than the previous practice of spreading out operations throughout a far larger area. It is now our objective to determine this favorable impact so we can share credible knowledge of social & economic changes & benefits with our own stakeholders, academia and the larger green growth neighborhood, as well as to get more information ourselves and tweak our practices and technique as essential” specified Barry Rawlinson.
Sustainability is identified as a very complex subject. With the agriculture and agroforestry sectors it is the circulation and exchange of expertise by downscaling global environment designs and incorporating this with grassroots knowledge and expertise that is extensively accepted as one of the fundamental foundation in the development of constructive development suggestions and policies. Asia Plantation Capital sees their organisation as embedded in this useful global proces.
