Almond and Carob Restoration, Europe

Restoration and conservation of almond and carob production in Spain, Italy and Portugal

The World Bee Project and its partner Projecte Equilibri in alliance with partners from Spain, Italy, Malta, and Portugal, are developing innovative strategies to support almond and carob farming in southern Europe and advance solutions for policymakers. We aim to improve the health of bees and other pollinators by introducing specific pollination services to improve almond production and build resilient honey and wild bee communities better able to resist the ravages of Xylella Fastidiosa. Our approach integrates resilient agricultural approaches in the face of erratic weather patterns through interactions with crops, seeds, and soil.
