Reconnecting with the living for sustainable humanity

The third annual Forest Month in 2021 will focus on the theme of restoring ecosystems, as Reforest’Action takes another look at the relationship between human societies and life in all its forms. How did we become disconnected from Nature down the centuries, and how has this schism not proved fatal? How can we create sustainable humanity, in harmony with natural ecosystems? Part philosophy and part ecology, reconnecting to the living is essential when thinking about tomorrow’s world.

Protect and restore the world's forests, two urgent and complementary actions

Although forests provide us with invaluable services every day, they are still affected by deforestation at a pace of 10 million hectares deforested each year. Collective action to protect and restore forests is more urgent than ever. These actions, closely complementary and both urgently needed, will together provide a significant part of the global response to the climate and biodiversity crisis.

Ecosystem restoration: 5 questions about the Great Green Wall of the Sahel region

Since 2007, the Great Green Wall project, led by the African Union, aims to fight against the spread of the desert by restoring natural ecosystems within a 15 km wide and 7,800 km long strip that crosses eleven Sahelian countries. Originally conceived as a vegetal barrier to hold the desert back, the project now has a broader approach: sustainable management and restoration of these arid ecosystems. Fifteen years after its launch, how is the Great Green Wall evolving? What challenges does it face and what are its future prospects? Discover the project through five questions.

Pierre Hermans : "The European forest is multifunctional by nature"

Although European forests do not face the same challenges as tropical forests do, they are nonetheless affected by degradation phenomena, caused, in particular, by climate change. What roles do European forests play in our lives and what challenges do they face? Why do they need to be restored to ensure their sustainability and multifunctionality ? Pierre Hermans, consultant and specialist in European projects for Reforest'Action, shares his expertise and reminds us that the continuous search for forest balance is what makes his job so interesting.

Ecosystem restoration is essential for the climate and biodiversity

A scientific study published in October 2020 in the Nature journal revealed that restoration of areas damaged by industrial or agricultural exploitation could be far more effective than expected in combating global warming and biodiversity loss. However, ecosystem restoration currently receives only 1% of the funding dedicated to the global climate challenge. This key study was launched in anticipation of 2021, the first year of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration

Forest Revival After a Fire and the Impact of Climate Change

In the past few months, large-scale forest fires have made headlines, particularly in the Amazon and Siberia, as well as more recently in California. Climate change is causing dry spells and heat waves to intensify, resulting in massive fires that devastate both the environment and local populations. We asked our Forestry Project Managers a few questions to better understand what is the best strategy to adopt to promote forest regeneration after such events.
