Project design in Vitiforestry: Techniques enriched by stakeholder relationships. Four questions to Pierre Hermans, Director of the Research Department, Reforest'Action

Pierre Hermans shares with us his rich experience in vitiforestry - the practice of applying agroforestry techniques to vineyard plots. Implementing them requires adaptation to local contexts and the issues encountered on the territory. Our expert explains how he builds the project design in collaboration with multiple stakeholders.

Reforest'Action becomes official endorser of the New York Declaration on Forests

Adopted in 2014 and revised in 2021, the New York Declaration on Forests (NYDF) is a global political text calling for international action to protect and restore forests by 2030 through 10 goals. Subject to an annual progress review, the Declaration is supported by nearly 200 governments, businesses, NGOs and indigenous communities. In 2022, Reforest'Action became an official endorser of the NYDF.

European youth get involved for the forest in Reims

On Saturday, November 26, young French and European citizens gathered to plant 500 trees in a residential area of the city of Reims in Champagne-Ardenne. Together, they contributed to the creation of an urban forest that will provide significant socio-environmental benefits. Illustrating their commitment to a more ecological future, they became ambassadors of the European Year of Youth for one afternoon.

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.

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.

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 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.
