Unlocking Resilience through Vital Agricultural Regeneration and Adaptation (URVARA)
Unsustainable farming practices in the project region, including over-intensive tilling, excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides, poor water management, and crop residue burning, have contributed to the deterioration of soils. This progressive degradation of soil not only diminishes its fertility and agricultural yields but also heightens the susceptibility of farmers to the adverse effects of climate change.
This project will equip the region’s many small farmers with the knowledge and resources to counteract land degradation, replenish soil carbon, and fortify resilient agricultural and food systems. Boomitra partners with local organizations to help farmers adopt improved agricultural practices to increase soil organic carbon and improve their productivity through activities such as reduced tilling, mulching with crop residues, organic manure application, water management, and agroforestry activities.

Clima, Comunidad y Biodiversidad
In addition to increased carbon drawdown and subsequent carbon finance, the project brings numerous advantages for both the environment and the community. Regenerative agricultural practices aid in the reversal of land degradation, facilitating the restoration of carbon to the soil, and ultimately leading to improved overall soil health. This enhancement in soil health leads to improved yields, biodiversity, local water quality, and more. These advancements provide farmers with the tools and resilience needed to support and stabilize their livelihoods. The implementation of improved agricultural practices thus presents an immense opportunity to fortify resilient agricultural and food systems.
