Dear MEL Topic Readers,

How do you bring a forest back to life?

Deforestation. Over 18 million acres of forests are being lost each year. Deforestation could be caused by fires, cutting for agriculture, ranching, or housing, over-logging, and climate change. In order to cope with this crisis, a global initiative was endorsed at the 2014 UN Climate Summit, which is to bring 150 million hectares of the world’s deforested and degraded land into restoration by 2020, and 350 million hectares by 2030. We had six years back in 2014 until 2020 but less than a year now. How are we doing?

In most places, once the land is deforested or degraded, sustainable reforestation doesn’t simply occur naturally. Sustainable reforestation needs sustainable ecosystem with biodiversity that suits the region. It also requires mid-to-long-term financial returns on investment, such as agricultural produces, eco-tourism, and carbon credit, not to mention the lumber from the forest. It seems that more stakeholders enjoy financial benefits, more environmental benefits can be created and sustained.

Enjoy reading and learn what it takes to bring forests back to life.
