Land Portal and Solutions Journalism Network LEDE Fellow Nieves Zúñiga are collaborating on a project to spread solutions-based stories about repairing the environment, while also improving land governance.

About the collaboration

The Land Portal is a leading global platform for inclusive knowledge sharing on land governance. We believe that access to information is crucial for achieving good land governance and securing land rights for landless and vulnerable people. Our mission is to nurture a growing information ecosystem on land governance to inform and improve decision-making, policy and practice at all levels. 

Solutions Journalism Network’s mission is to transform journalism so that all people have access to news that helps them envision and build a more equitable and sustainable world. The LEDE Fellowship, awarded by Solutions Journalism Network, allows journalists entrepreneurs to create and lead projects to spread solutions journalism. 

The Land Portal and LEDE Fellow Nieves Zúñiga will sponsor six solution stories about land and the environment to be produced and published in 2022. Our collaboration is to faciliate training, dialogue, story production and dissemination on solutions repairing environmental damage and improving land governance. The stories will be first published in local outlets and ultimately published for a global audience on the Land Portal.  

Alarming news about the devastation of global warming or the destructive consequences of our economic activities or consumption are in the media daily. But, the reality is that human action is also the solution even if this part of the story hardly makes it to the media. We choose to highlight these solutions. 

Please stay tuned to this space for future updates. 

 

Join us for the introductory briefing on March 9.

Beekeeping revives forests, land in Zimbabwe

03 February 2023
From Zimbabwe, Nhau Mangirazi tells the story of how beekeeping revives forest in the Hurungwe district, published by The Standard. Apiculture not only preserves the forest from tobacco farming – the main cause of deforestation in the area – and serves as a bio-fence acting as a buffer zone between humans and wild animals, it also brings an extra source of income to the locals, many of the beneficiaries women.

From Japan to Brazil: Reforesting the Amazon with the Miyawaki method

03 February 2023
Reforestation using the Miyawaki method seeks to restore nature to its original state with results that can be seen in around six years. Miyawaki works around three concepts: trees should be native, several species should be randomly planted, and the materials for the seedlings and the soil should be organic. The method is suitable for urban areas, which gives it a significant capacity to connect human beings with nature, with benefits for the health and well-being of the population. Different from other reforestation methods that may seek a financial return, like agroforestry, the motivation of the Miyawaki method is purely ecological.
