NTFP harvesters as citizen scientists: Validating traditional and crowdsourced knowledge on seed production of Brazil nut trees in the Peruvian Amazon - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry

Understanding the factors that underlie the production of non-timber forest products (NTFPs), as well as regularly monitoring production levels, are key to allow sustainability assessments of NTFP extractive economies. Brazil nut (Bertholletia excelsa, Lecythidaceae) seed harvesting from natural forests is one of the cornerstone NTFP economies in Amazonia. In the Peruvian Amazon it is organized in a concession system. Drawing …

Estimating landscape susceptibility to soil erosion using a GIS-based approach in Northern Ethiopia | World Agroforestry Centre

Soil erosion is a very critical form of land degradation resulting in the loss of soil nutrients and downstreamsedimentation of water storages in the highlands of Ethiopia. As it is technically and financiallyimpossible to conserve all landscapes affected by erosion, identification of priority areas of intervention isnecessary. Spatially distributed erosion models can help map landscape susceptibility to erosion andidentify high erosion risk areas.

European Forest Institute - News

European Forest Institute - News | Ecosystèmes Tropicaux | Scoop.it
Forests are of crucial importance for Natura 2000, the EU-wide ecological network of protected areas. Nearly 25% of the total forest area in the EU is part of the network, but knowledge about how Natura 2000 is implemented in forests, and its effects on biodiversity, forest management and other land uses across the EU is fragmented.
The new What Science Can Tell Us Study from EFI, ‘Natura 2000 and forests: Assessing the state of implementation and effectiveness’, bridges this gap in knowledge. It looks from policy, economic and ecological perspectives at the monitoring of forest biodiversity in Europe, as well as the challenges, achievements, effectiveness and efficiency of the implementation of Natura 2000 in forests in the EU.
Lauri Hetemäki, EFI Assistant Director said: “the new EFI study brings together scientific knowledge and makes recommendations to help policy makers to deal with the many issues related to the practical implementation of biodiversity in EU forests.”
The interdisciplinary scientific study was conducted by a team of 20 scientists from 11 research institutes in 11 countries. Ten of EFI’s Associate Members were involved.
The study’s main outcomes and policy recommendations will be discussed at the ThinkForest seminar, ‘Implementing Natura 2000 in forests: Lessons learned and looking ahead’ in Brussels on 27 September. More information can be found here: http://www.efi.int/portal/policy_advice/thinkforest/upcoming_events/

Why should China include a gender perspective in its climate change policies? - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry

Why should China include a gender perspective in its climate change policies? - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry | Ecosystèmes Tropicaux | Scoop.it
Women are playing a leading role in coping with and adapting to climate change in the mountainous rural areas of China’s Yunnan province, where disruptions in weather patterns and increasingly extreme events are expected to impact agricultural livelihoods. However, while women are assuming more responsibility than men, their voices are mostly excluded from the policy-making processes that affect their daily …
