Forest Landscape Restoration | Land Portal

Restoration is an urgent correction to the past and current global land degradation trends, to return forest cover, improve food security, and tackle climate change – among other goals. It has been estimated over 2 billion hectares of degraded land provide opportunities for forest and landscape restoration [1]. In September 2011, world leaders launched global Bonn Challenge – a voluntary global initiative that aimed to restore 150 million hectares of degraded land by 2020 [2].

The global Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) movement is gaining momentum. Thus, it is important to clarify what FLR is, the concepts, opportunities, challenges and its future implications.

There are, in addition, unique features of this journal:

At Global Canopy we focus on the market forces driving two thirds of deforestation worldwide.

We do not create protected areas to keep rainforests standing, but focus instead on the production, trade and financing of the key commodities responsible for agricultural expansion into tropical forests.

We provide data, insight and guidance for the companies, investors and governments already taking positive action, and help shine a light on those that need to do more.

Climate change, deforestation and poverty are global issues that go beyond the reach of single companies or governments; it takes public-private cooperation to solve them.

IDH, The Sustainable Trade Initiative brings governments, companies, CSOs and financiers together in action driven coalitions. We orchestrate the powers of law, of entrepreneurship and investments to work together to create solutions for global sustainability issues at scale.

Imazon

Imazon (Imazon)

No final dos anos 1980, as imagens de destruição da Amazônia começavam a ganhar destaque na imprensa nacional e mundial. O desmatamento acelerado, as queimadas, a exploração predatória de madeira e a proliferação dos garimpos de ouro exerciam grande pressão ambiental e social sobre a região. Nessa época, o ecólogo norte-americano Christopher Uhl, então pesquisador visitante da Embrapa, realizava pesquisas sobre as áreas degradadas no leste do Pará e preocupava-se com o pouco entendimento e a escassa documentação dessas transformações na paisagem Amazônica.
