Forest News #13

This month: a chinese app and 100million trees, how the “Global tree restoration potential” study ignited a global tree discussion (and why that’s good), the role of technology in connecting people to restoration work, and why urban greening needs to be in the global toolbox.

Forest News #12

Our October issue is dedicated to the current climate change discussion, how we might be at an important time in history and why we don’t need to wait for tomorrow’s technology to act today. Enjoy the reading!

Forest News #11

On the July issue, we look into the recently calculated global tree restoration potential (900 million ha!) and some of the challenges that come with it. We follow with a critical look into the difficulties and failures in reducing deforestation in supply chain and finish with a suggested online course on managing terrestrial ecosystems. We’ll be back in September, after the holidays!

Forest News #10

Our June issue looks at the technical solutions being developed to tackle climate change, how their adoption strongly depends on economic aspects and why we need to keep the broader picture in mind. Since we’re all about trees, we also announce two new project members, then go to agroforestry and the life-quality benefits of forests. Enjoy the reading!

Forest News #9

Our February issue is focused on landscape restoration and certified timber production. Our selection of articles looks into some of the critical aspects: the impacts of large-scale projects, the challenges of proving impact with robust scientific data and the difficulties of implementing certification schemes that try to incorporate multiple dimensions. Plenty of food for thought, we hope.

Forest News #8

Our January issue looks at commodities and some of the efforts (and challenges) in making their production more sustainable while contributing to restore degraded landscapes and improve livelihoods. The video highlight takes on the end-consumer’s role in this work. Good reading and a good start of 2019!

Forest News #7

Our November issue looks into the connections between forests, plantations and adaptations to climatic variations. We also look into the growing use of wood as a building material and the extraction of non-food resources from forests. Our selected video shows how small-scale farmers are often a crucial part of restoration and conservation efforts.

Forest News #6

In this issue, a special mention to our summer events and to the Right Livelihood Awards 2018, bestowed to two people with a long work on land and forest restoration. We then look into a selection of best practices and challenges in adopting agroforestry, move on to forest-based commodities in the supply chain and finish with a book suggestion.

Forest News #5

This month’s issue looks into the difficult balance between forests and plantations, taking palm oil as an example of the different issues at stake. We then move on to FLR – Forest (and) Landscape Restoration and REDD+ approaches. The monthly online course suggestion looks into business approaches to sustainable landscape restoration.

Forest News #4

In this issue, we go from urban trees to mountain forests, with a look on the impact of gender on restoration efforts and a e-course on REDD+. Also, don’t forget to check the upcoming Latsis conference in Zürich, Switzerland, joining several international experts to discuss how to scale-up forest restoration.
