Habitat destruction and biodiversity loss are challenging issues confronting current agricultural practices globally.
Over the years, Fundación Global Nature has been actively engaging with farming communities to promote biodiversity in agriculture through its award-winning projects on sustainable farming.
The foundation maintains one of the most important and extensive land stewardship networks in Spain. With more than 470 agreements covering around 26,000 hectares of land, it has provided ongoing support and education to farmers on sustainable agriculture.
Around 225 of these agreements are in the La Mancha region and are therefore directly linked to salt steppe farming and wildlife conservation in the area’s wetland ecosystem.
With our support, Fundación Global Nature is working closely with local farmers to introduce them to conservation and innovative farming practices that will have a positive impact on the environment.
Thus, Aramco is also supporting the acquisition of cropland into the buffer area of the Mediterranean salt steppes to offer to local farmers a demonstrative pilot farm managed by Fundación Global Nature, where farmers can learn how to integrate nature conservation and agrarian production.
