As florestas naturais capturam muito mais CO2 do que as artificiais. Um novo estudo não apenas confirma isso, mas demonstra que as florestas naturais (e por isso mesmo bem mais ricas em biodiversidade) funcionam melhor do que as monoculturas e as plantações dominadas por uma única espécie.

El reconocimiento de derechos es crucial para abordar el calentamiento global y el cambio climático

I write this blog as our project team embarks on a fifth year of work on women’s land tenure security (WOLTS) with pastoral communities in mining-affected areas of Mongolia and Tanzania. Just before Christmas 2019, we were in Mundarara village in northern Tanzania. Exceptionally heavy rains made getting around much more challenging than usual. Locals travelling on foot had to make wide detours to avoid getting bogged down in waterlogged grazing land, and it took everyone much longer to get to the village primary school for our long-planned training day.
