This event marks an important step on the way of making the SAREP vision reality. Last year, the project was presented at COP28 in Dubai and featured in the German national News. The Mauritanian government meanwhile has formed an interministerial committee to support the project and a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed granting a stepwise access to 2 million hectares of land.

At the end of January 2024, further negotiations were successfully held with various Mauritanian ministries regarding administrative details and permits required for the project. Along our way we have connected with countless interested individuals, experts from academia as well as practitioners from industry who share our vision behind SAREP.  The focus of this event will lie on the introduction of our key knowledge and technology providers as well as their field of expertise and to discuss about the design and concrete implementation of a first pilot agroforestry plot of about 40 ha.
