The breeding season begins! Help us tackle an ambitious year and answer the call for Madagascar
CPALI’s sustainable livelihoods program seeks to connect people and resources in a mutually beneficial way. Through our work, we develop conservation solutions that are sustainable, inclusive, and driven by local communities.
Locally organized teams of farmers cultivate native resources that CPALI markets abroad. Farmers are earning tangible benefits from the land that they steward while recovering degraded habitats and building the border forest of the Makira Protected Area.

At CPALI, we work with rural farmers to develop sustainable livelihoods that support both people and ecosystems. In our approach, we focus on existing resources, local leadership, community ownership and linking partners to global markets.
CPALI wild silk farmers are raising native species of silkworms that feed on native trees. Producing silk cocoons, sewing silk textiles, and learning how to prepare insects as protein supplements are some of the projects in which farmers and their families are engaged.
