Guinea: faced with the disappearance of natural forests, local communities are committed to reforestation

Witnessing massive deforestation and the environmental devastation it causes, village communities are embarking with RENASCEDD, our technical partner based in Conakry, to restore forests in Guinea. Initiated in 2018 with financial support from Reforest'Action, the reforestation project is being conducted on the ground thanks to the commitment of the people who are direct beneficiaries.

Madagascar: over 10,000 trees take root on the banks of the Onive River

In Madagascar, our reforestation campaign is coming to an end with the planting of the last trees of the season. In total, Reforest'Action's support to the Génération Masoala project will have made it possible to plant 82,000 trees since 2018, including 60,000 trees in 2020. Let’s have a look back at one of this season's flagship operations that generated great benefits for both the environment and local communities: the reforestation of the Onive River banks.

Companies can save the Amazon: Stéphane Hallaire's opinion column

The figures are indisputable: deforestation continues to accelerate worldwide, particularly in Brazil, where 20% of the Amazonian forest has already been destroyed. For Stéphane Hallaire, President of Reforest'Action, companies have the extraordinary capacity, interest and historical responsibility to become the main financial backers of global reforestation. He expresses this in this opinion column published in Les Echos, France's leading business daily newspaper, on 5 August 2020.

Conserving and Restoring Biodiversity in Forests

It is becoming increasingly necessary to preserve animal biodiversity in forests. However, finding a solution that makes an impact on all species, and not just one to the detriment of another, can be problematic. This is made all the more difficult by the fact that the vast majority of species on Earth remain unknown to us! While there are 1.7 million recorded animal species worldwide, scientists estimate that between 3 and 100 million species have yet to be discovered. So what solutions can be deployed?

Diversity of Life Supporting the Ecological Balance of Forests

What is at stake in terms of preserving the diversity of life in our forests? If this depends on the fragile equilibrium of forest ecosystems, the loss of a single species causes upheavals across its entire environment. Biodiversity preservation and ecosystem conservation are therefore closely linked.

Sources of Biodiversity Loss in Forests

Deforestation, overexploitation of species, global warming: these three main factors in forest animal biodiversity loss (in other words, the loss of diversity of animal species living in forests), are reflective of the impact humans have on the environment around them

The threats facing forests

The forest is a common heritage, oh-so necessary for humanity but highly threatened. In spite of a collective awareness, tropical forests continue to be victims of intensive deforestation, mainly due to our consumption patterns. At the same time, forests in temperate zones are affected by hazards which are only increasing and directly linked to climate change. On the occasion of the "Forest Month", learn more about the two main types of threats facing the world's forests.​
