As a project operator, PUR Projet manages the projects over the long term from the designing phase to the implementation and then the monitoring, being at the same time a project coordinator, a technical assistance provider and a key expert in agroforestry and community-led projects for our local partners (cooperatives, NGOs, etc.). Whether we start a new project or join an exisiting initiative, we always start by auditing the projects in the field to assess the relevance of the project according to different criteria (sustainability, social and environmental impacts, project costs, local partners, etc.). Then, we design the project with our local partners and technicians hired by PUR Projet or by the local partner are coordinating the actions in the field. We set up seedling nurseries and train the participating farmers to tree planting and maintenance. We are coordinating seedlings distribution and then collecting the very precise GPS data of the area to be restored and the tree species planted. All this information is stored in our information system, which enable us to follow precisely the project evolution over the time: we regularly visit and monitor the projects to check the plantations and make sure of their permanence. New training sessions or technical assistance for the farmers or the cooperatives are organised over time, in order for the project to be sustainable. When it comes to certification, PUR Projet also makes the connection with the auditors who visit the project. Finally, we send regular progress reports to our partners.
