Issues / Land Degradation & Tenure

Land Degradation & Tenure

One third of the world’s soils - including farmland, forests, rangelands, and urban land - are already degraded and it is estimated that this number could rise to almost 90% by 2050. Land Degradation occurs naturally, but research shows that land degradation is increasingly caused directly or indirectly by unsustainable human activities, notably deforestation, overgrazing, mining or intensive agriculture. This has driven biodiversity loss, desertification, and led to a significant increase in greenhouse gas emissions.

Partout dans le monde, les catastrophes engendrent des destructions d’une ampleur inédite. Les bouleversements qui en découlent compromettent le fonctionnement et la viabilité de la production agricole et menacent les moyens d’existence de millions de personnes qui sont tributaires des systèmes agroalimentaires.
