Review confirms climate change is threatening many ecosystem services

Climate change is having mixed — but mostly negative — impacts on ecosystem services, suggest data analysed by a new study. The research, which brings together the findings of over 100 other studies, found that 59% of reported impacts of climate change on ecosystem services are negative, while just 13% are positive. However, the method of research was shown to strongly influence whether impacts are reported as positive or negative, with expert opinion studies far more negative than other types of study.

Cool insights for a hot world: trees and forests recycle water - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry

Cool insights for a hot world: trees and forests recycle water - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry | Ecosystèmes Tropicaux | Scoop.it
By Daisy Ouya, originally published at ICRAF’s Agroforestry World Blog Anyone who has walked outside on a sunny day knows that forests and trees matter for temperature, humidity and wind speed. Planting trees speaks to concerns about climate change, but the directly important aspects of the tree-climate relationships have so far been overlooked in climate policy where it relates to …

Towards a global centre of excellence for land restoration after mining - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry | Ecosystèmes Tropicaux | Scoop.it
Originally posted at ICRAF’s Agroforestry World Blog The scale of mining activities today is greater than ever but so are its environmental and social impacts. Over the past few decades mining has contributed to millions of hectares of land degradation worldwide. Open-pit mining transforms productive landscapes into ruined wastelands with disastrous consequences for biodiversity, climate, water and soil resources and …

The forests of Central Africa: A source of wealth to be rediscovered - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry | Ecosystèmes Tropicaux | Scoop.it
By Guillaume Lescuyer, originally published at CIFOR’s Forests News Although Cameroon has benefitted from sustainable forest management in the past 20 years and has a relatively well-preserved forest cover today, its forests are under increased pressure due to expanding agro-industrial exploitation, shifting cultivation, infrastructure construction and logging. A recently published study aims to provide an updated estimate of the economic …

Addressing Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Together: A Global Assessment of Agriculture and Forestry Projects - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry

Authors: Rico Kongsager, Bruno Locatelli, Florie Chazarin Adaptation and mitigation share the ultimate purpose of reducing climate change impacts. However, they tend to be considered separately in projects and policies because of their different objectives and scales. Agriculture and forestry are related to both adaptation and mitigation: they contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and removals, are vulnerable to climate variations, …

Host country governance and the African land rush: 7 reasons why large-scale farmland investments fail to contribute to sustainable development - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry

Authors: Schoneveld, G.C. The large social and environmental footprint of rising investor demand for Africa’s farmland has in recent years become a much-examined area of enquiry. This has produced a rich body of literature that has generated valuable insights into the underlying drivers, trends, social and environmental impacts, discursive implications, and global governance options. Host country governance dynamics have in …
