MISSION STATEMENT

Economics of Land Degradation Initiative logo

The Economics of Land Degradation (ELD) Initiative is an initiative on the economic benefits of land and land based ecosystems. The initiative highlights the value of sustainable land management and provides a global approach for analysis of the economics of land degradation. It aims to make economics of land degradation an integral part of policy strategies and decision making by increasing the political and public awareness of the costs and benefits of land and land-based ecosystems.

Spread across diverse ecological and social geographies, FES works towards conservation of nature and natural resources through collective action of local communities. The crux of FES efforts lie in locating forests and other natural resources within the prevailing economic, social and ecological dynamics in rural landscapes.

Un tiers des sols de la planète - y compris les terres agricoles, les forêts, les pâturages et les terrains urbains - sont déjà dégradés et on estime que ce chiffre pourrait atteindre près de 90 % d'ici 2050. D'une manière générale, l'érosion des sols est considérée comme l'enlèvement accéléré de la couche arable de la surface terrestre par 'eau, le vent ou les cultures, ce qui entraîne une dégradation des sols. En outre, la dégradation des sols comprend également la détérioration des propriétés biophysiques et chimiques du sol, de l'eau et de la biodiversité. La dégradation des sols se produit naturellement, mais les recherches montrent qu'elle est de plus en plus causée directement ou indirectement par des activités humaines non durables, notamment la déforestation, le surpâturage, l'exploitation minière ou l'agriculture intensive. Cela a entraîné la perte de biodiversité, la désertification et une augmentation significative des émissions de gaz à effet de serre.
