Timeline PhotosIn the 1970s, Costa Rica’s deforestation rates were among the world’s worst. But with a new landmark forestry law in 1996 that banned deforestation and introduced a pioneering payment system to champion reforestation and biodiversity, forest cover is now back to 52 per cent. For small farmers, agroforestry makes economic as well as environmental sense. Trees provide shade, compost and a habitat for the flies that pollinate the cacao. On top of that, bananas are harvested every two weeks, supplying a steady income.
