This project, which will be financed by the Government of Mexico, aims to strengthen the technical capacities of the Camp-Perrin Forest and Fruit Germplasm Center and will also contribute to the development of satellite nurseries in remote and difficult-to-access environments, with a view to the production of fruit and forest species for the benefit of the local population.
Cadet requested that the project be carried out in synergy with the environmental projects in progress, in order to have coherent and coordinated actions.
