    Senegal

    Au Sénégal, où 80 % de la production est fournie par les petites exploitations agricoles, l’agriculture et l’élevage constituent les principaux secteurs d’activité économique du pays. Or, le Sénégal est très vulnérable au changement climatique, à la dégradation des sols et à l’insécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle, et bien que développant des stratégies d’adaptation en vue de renforcer leur résilience individuelle et sociale, les agriculteurs sont durement touchés par l’ensemble de ces facteurs.

    Cameroon

    Land Observatories (LOs) monitor how large-scale land deals impact the environment, culture, and traditional ways of life of local and indigenous communities.

    They try to understand how local, regional, national and transnational land transactions in agriculture, forestry, mining, ranching, and livestock keeping impact livelihoods.

    In a world grappling with the challenges of food insecurity, climate change, landscape degradation, and rural poverty, regreening offers a path forward, especially in dryland areas. The transformation of degraded landscapes—restoring productivity and increasing resilience through the widespread adoption of agroforestry and sustainable land management practices—can deliver food, climate, and livelihood benefits.
    Table of contents:
    Part I. Introduction
    Part II. How and Where is Regreening Happening?

    As the applications of Earth system models (ESMs) move from general climate projections toward questions of mitigation and adaptation, the inclusion of land management practices in these models becomes crucial. We carried out a survey among modeling groups to show an evolution from models able only to deal with land-cover change to more sophisticated approaches that allow also for the partial integration of land management changes. For the longer term a comprehensive land management representation can be anticipated for all major models.
