The Biriba programme encompasses several rural settlements in Brazil, in the States of Sao Paulo and Bahia. The programme works closely with smallholders from rural settlements ("assentamentos") that are fighting to have access to land. Those settlements are a game-changer for the archaic and extremely unequal land tenure structure, maintained since the country's colonisation period.

The programme supports the establishment of training and technical assistance for the dissemination of agroforestry models using cocoa, baru, coffee, açaí jussara, banana trees, as well as forestry restoration with a highly diverse number of species.

The strengthening of these initiatives will allow the capacity building of families on agroforestry and agroecology, as well as the environmental regularization of the plots and ecosystem services provision.

In its first plantation wave, the program aims to reach 20 ha of restoration and implementation of agroforestry systems. The program has the potential to reach over 2,000 ha and accelerate the dissemination of regenerative agriculture models in the country, at the same time as benefiting more than 400 families with the diversification of production and the provision of ecosystem services in the properties.
