Encouraging companies to contribute to the regeneration of living organisms: an interview with Flora Calandre, Senior Advisor "Climate & Biodiversity Solutions" - Luxury sector, at Reforest'Action.

Increasingly concerned about contributing to the regeneration of living organisms, companies are deploying adapted solutions within their value chains in collaboration with Reforest'Action. In this interview with Flora Calandre, Senior Advisor Climate & Biodiversity Solutions - Luxury Sector, we discussed the challenges of the regenerative economy, the benefits of regenerative agriculture techniques, and the net positive impact of these projects.

The Forest Information System (FIS): 4 questions to Carole Renner, Head of Reforest'Action's Impact Unit

The Forest Information System (FIS): 4 questions to Carole Renner, Head of Reforest'Action's Impact Unit

As a long-awaited Research & Development project, the Forest Information System will revolutionize the management of our projects. With the development of such an "information system," our contributors will be able to monitor their impacts closely.

Vitiforestry at the Ruinart Champagne House to regenerate ecosystems

Vitiforestry at the Ruinart Champagne House to regenerate ecosystems

Accompanied by Reforest'Action, the Ruinart Champagne House has been deploying a pilot project since 2020 in its Taissy vineyard, north of the Montagne de Reims, in the Marne region. A great plot of almost 40 hectares near the Montbré forest was considered an ideal setting. A rare unit area in the Champagne region, it has become a place for experimenting with vitiforestry - applying agroforestry techniques to the vine. Planting trees in the middle or around the plots, cultivating in layers, or developing assisted natural regeneration: there exist various agricultural practices. These techniques can regenerate the soil, preserve water, sequester carbon, and safeguard biodiversity. Multiple stakeholders are also involved in the territory.

What are Nature-based Solutions (NbS)?

What are Nature-based Solutions (NbS)?

The protection and restoration of forests, mangroves, and coral reefs, the conservation or restoration of wetlands, or the creation of urban green spaces… the so-called Nature-based Solutions (NbS) are inspired and supported by nature to provide environmental, social and economic benefits. They also help build resilience. They bring nature and natural features as well as processes into cities, landscapes or seascapes - through locally adapted, resource-efficient and systemic interventions. Nature-based solutions are therefore supposed to benefit biodiversity and support the delivery of a range of ecosystem services. Preserving, managing, or even restoring ecosystems to meet today's societal challenges: such prospects offered by Nature-based Solutions are largely endorsed by Reforest‘Action.

What is a "Carbon Sink"?

What is a "Carbon Sink"?

A Carbon Sink – like plants, the ocean, and soil, are reservoirs that absorb more carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere than they release. It refers to a process called "carbon sequestration": natural or artificial deposits created where carbon would be stored for various periods depending on the medium. In contrast, a carbon source would be anything releasing more carbon into the atmosphere than it absorbs – burning fossil fuels or volcanic eruptions, for example.

What is a "Carbon Budget"?

What is a "Carbon Budget"?

Like a household budget, climate scientists define the "Carbon budget" as the number of greenhouse gases that can be "spent" - or emitted, considering global warming. Exceeding this threshold could cause global temperatures to reach dangerous levels. Therefore, the carbon budget implies that we must change our activities to meet the predicted favorable scenarios.

An urgent need for funding to restore and preserve forest ecosystems

At the current rate and funding, it will only be possible to intervene in 8 to 12% of the metropolitan area of forests by 2050. The French High Council for the Climate is thus sounding the alarm in its 2022 annual report entitled "Overcome the findings, implement the solutions," while he also draws up a severe inventory of the impacts of climate change in France. We must therefore act quickly in France as well as in the world - as also underlined by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in its "2022 Annual Report".

Climate Week 2022: Reforest'Action participates in the dialogue on forest restoration

Invited by the World Economic Forum to participate in various events during the Climate Week as part of the Sustainable Development Impact meetings, Stéphane Hallaire, President of Reforest'Action, shared our expertise in reforestation and agroforestry. His presence in New York was also an opportunity to have bilateral meetings with major actors and funders of forest restoration.

Blue Carbon Ecosystems: A “Nature-Based Solution” to fight Climate Change

Blue Carbon Ecosystems: A “Nature-Based Solution” to fight Climate Change

The term “Blue Carbon” refers to the carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems, such as seagrasses, salt marshes, mangrove swamps, peatlands, and kelp beds. Blue carbon ecosystems are particularly important for their capacity to store carbon and are considered as a key component of nature-based solutions to climate change. It can also provide many other significant benefits - such as socio-economic benefits, increased biodiversity, or cleaner water. Unfortunately, they are some of the most threatened ecosystems on Earth. 35% of mangroves have disappeared in only 20 years for instance.

World Forestry Congress: Reforest'Action promotes bioeconomy and private sector power for forest restoration

Present for the first time at the UN Congress, Reforest'Action contributed to the dialogue on global forest issues alongside leaders of leading forestry organizations and field actors. Stéphane Hallaire, president and founder of Reforest'Action, spoke during three sessions that brought together Tony Simons, executive director of ICRAF, Adriana Vidal, president of GPFLR and John Parrotta, president of IUFRO.
