Bush encroachment in sub-Saharan Africa: causes, impacts, and management strategies - A review

Décembre, 2022
Global

presentation about Bush encroachment that poses a pervasive challenge to Sub-Saharan Africa's rangelands, impacting ecosystem dynamics, biodiversity, and local livelihoods. This study comprehensively analyzes bush encroachment in the region, exploring its causes, impacts, and management strategies. Climate change, driven by global factors like fossil fuel combustion and deforestation, intensifies the greenhouse effect, contributing to encroachment. Land use practices, such as overgrazing and invasive species, further spur woody vegetation expansion.

Effectiveness of the Yangambi biosphere reserve in reducing deforestation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Décembre, 2022
Congo

Establishing protected areas creates an opportunity to reduce deforestation. This study aims to inform the Congolese government’s efforts to promote forest and biodiversity conservation by assessing the effectiveness of the Yangambi Biosphere Reserve (YBR) in reducing deforestation. Group and individual interviews designed to understand the causes of pressure on forest cover in the Yangambi landscape complemented satellite imagery analyses. The results indicate that deforestation inside the YBR is not significantly different from outside the YBR.

Local working collections as the foundation for an integrative conservation of Theobroma cacao L. in Latin America

Décembre, 2022
Global

The intraspecific diversity of cacao has traditionally been preserved in genebanks. However, these establishments face various challenges, notably insufficient funding, accession redundancy, misidentification and lack of wild cacao population samples. In natural environments, it is expected that unknown varieties of cacao may still be found, but wild populations of cacao

Linkages between EU Deforestation-Free Regulation and traceability tools: An exploration from the Honduran coffee sector

Décembre, 2022
United States of America

Under the new EU deforestation regulation (EUDR), dated 31/05/2023, coffee producers and other producers of other significant commodities —cocoa, oil palm, rubber, soya, cattle, and wood— will have to comply with three aspects to export their products into the European Un ion. These aspects are i) Deforestation-free; 2) Production under the relevant legislation of the country of production; and 3) Due diligence statement. (Council of the European Union, 2022).

Terra-i+ website: Satellite based solution for Agroforestry Supply Chain Sustainability (https://www.terra-iplus.org/)

Décembre, 2022
Global

Terra-i+ is a website that uses remote sensing technology to help supplier-sourced agribusinesses monitor and report on geospatial data for purpose of EU Deforestation Regulation compliance, certification management, and carbon project management.
Our vision is to enable inclusive approaches to stop deforestation and implement innovative climate action in the supply chain, by closing the geospatial and carbon data gaps, and lowering the capacity barrier to use geospatial data in a simple-to-use platform.

Hoja de ruta para acceder a instrumentos de financiamiento públicos y/o privados para lograr los compromisos del Acuerdo Cero Deforestación de la Cadena Láctea

Décembre, 2022
Global

This roadmap presents a series of stages and activities that are recommended to access to financing sources that encourage the adoption of practices associated with Zero Deforestation livestock farming models. The first part of the roadmap consists of categorization of the level of deforestation risk in the supply chain based on the self-analysis of the direct and indirect supply networks.

To what extent is REDD + integrated into land-use sectors driving deforestation? Insights from Cameroon

Décembre, 2022
Cameroon

Environmental policies ought to be integrated into economic sectors for successful outcomes. We assess to what extent Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD +) is integrated into land-use sectors driving deforestation in Cameroon. REDD + governance has been extensively examined, including the challenges of a multisectoral approach to tackle the drivers of deforestation, especially those lying outside the forestry sector.

Forty-year multi-scale land cover change and political ecology data reveal a dynamic and regenerative process of forests in Peruvian Indigenous Territories

Décembre, 2022
Global

This article explores deforestation and reforestation dynamics over 415,749 hectares of 25 titled Indigenous Community Lands (ICLs) in the Peruvian Amazon over forty years at three scales: total area, regions, and communities. We focus on ICLs as the territorial unit of analysis, as they are increasingly discussed regarding their importance for conservation. Additionally indigenous communities (ICs) are a too-marginalized group in the Amazon that merit more attention. Analyses of this kind are often short-term and use only large-scale Earth Observation methodologies.

A review of forest-food linkages in Kenya

Décembre, 2022
Kenya

This working paper was developed based on a policy and literature review to take stock of the latest information on forest-food linkages in Kenya. Our review shows Kenya’s forests play important roles in providing food directly to local communities, as well as requisite conditions for sustainable food production systems in the country. Food-forest linkages are widely articulated in different policies issued by the Government of Kenya that draw on the principle of producing food without destroying forests.

The underlying causes of deforestation during “peacetime”: Evidence from the implementation of the peace agreement in Colombia

Décembre, 2022
Colombia

The acceleration of deforestation is one of the unexpected consequences of the signing of the Peace Agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC-EP guerrilla in 2016. In recent years, deforested areas have increased in territories previously occupied by guerrilla and paramilitary groups, while illicit crops have expanded, and the violence perpetrated by other illegal armed groups has intensified. This research seeks to understand the relationship between the implementation of the Peace Agreement and deforestation in Colombia, mainly through a quantitative approach.
