Every year, May 22nd is celebrated as International Day for Biological Diversity. For 2017, the theme chosen is "biodiversity and sustainable tourism". As an institution promoting and acting for the protection of the unique biodiversity of the Big Island, the Foundation for Protected Areas and Biodiversity of Madagascar (FAPBM) naturally joins in this celebration. The foundation thus works hand in hand with the Ministry of Environment, Ecology and Forests for the organization of the different events promoting the biodiversity of Madagascar.
Forests are the origin of the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat or even the drugs we use to look after ourselves. By providing us with those essential elements for our existence, forests play a central role that is unfortunately often neglected. This is the reason why, this year 2017, the Foundation for the Protected Areas and the Biodiversity of Madagascar joined the celebration of the International Day of Forests held in Tulear.
Acting for the conservation of biodiversity and supporting the local economy: FAPBM has decided to embark on this path through impact investing. A quarter of the capital of the Foundation, a little more than 12 million Euros, is therefore dedicated to this type of investment that tends to have a positive social and / or environmental impact while generating a financial return.
