Fundación Monte Mediterráneo, Spain

Fundación Monte Mediterráneo, Andalusia. The foundation was created in 1992 animted by the World Exposition EXPO’92 in Seville. The aim was to put into practice with a concrete example what had been declared in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 as “sustainable development”. The adventure of a sustainable and ecological development in an Andalusian ecosystem – the Dehesa – had begun. Since then it follows the tradition of managing the dehesa: the Spanish name for grazed oak groves, which are mainly found in the southwest of Spain.

The philosophy of the exploitation of the Dehesa ecosystem is sustainable and ecological, i.e. traditional exploitation methods are applied in order to provide a source of income for the population that lives off the agro-silvo-pastoral resources. At the same time, these methods aim to conserve and enhance the natural resources.

Apart from agro-ecological farming, the Foundation is intensively involved in training, research, the implementation of regional and international development projects and the marketing of Dehesa products.
