Regenerative Agriculture

Rethinking our farming model with regenerative agriculture, or how to reconcile economic development and preserve resources

At a time when a quarter of the world's greenhouse gas emissions are caused by conventional agriculture, we urgently need to rethink our production methods. Regenerative agriculture offers constructive solutions. It is based on various agronomic practices inspired by organic farming, agroecology, and permaculture. Above all, it aims to ensure the long-term resilience and stability of the ecosystem by producing net positive impacts. Its priority is always to restore the quality of agricultural soils. Indeed, introducing more life and biodiversity into the dirt encourages the development of organic matter - making them more prosperous, more fertile, and naturally sequestering more carbon. Healthy soil will also impact water and air quality... and the whole ecosystem will become more stable in the long term and more resilient to climatic hazards.

Carbon finance

Carbon finance: a powerful tool in the fight against climate change

Greenhouse gases or GHGs act as a "natural protective shield" that keeps the Earth warm enough to live on. However, the increased concentration of these gases in the atmosphere (+51% of GHG emissions between 1990 and 2020 at the global level) is leading to an excessive climate warming. Since 2005 and the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol, mechanisms have been developed to encourage governments to reduce their carbon emissions. In order to do this, GHGs are gradually being transformed into tradable goods that can be exchanged on markets, just like any other currency, thus giving rise to a new branch of modern finance: carbon finance.

Participation of Reforest'Action in the One Forest Summit: Global summit for the preservation and sustainable management of tropical forests

Participation of Reforest'Action in the One Forest Summit: Global summit for the preservation and sustainable management of tropical forests

Stéphane Hallaire - President and Founder of Reforest'Action, participated in the One Forest Summit, on March 1st and 2nd, 2023, in Libreville, Gabon. This world summit in favor of the preservation and sustainable management of tropical forests put at the heart of the debates the question of the valorization of natural capital by proposing scientific, environmental, social, and economical solutions to the forest countries. Measures were adopted within the "Libreville Plan" framework to help them reconcile the demanding protection of these ecosystems with direct economic interests.

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.

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.

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.

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.
