FOREST AND AGRICULTURAL LAND
OUR ACTION TODAY
Forests are the largest reservoir of terrestrial biodiversity. Along with non-forest land, they are a tremendous lever for regulating the climate. Deforestation for agricultural purposes is the cause of nearly one-fourth of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and of accelerated biodiversity loss. Because of the close link between forests and agricultural land, FFEM treats them together.
Promoting local and concerted management of territories
Improving environmental performance
A cross-cutting approach
Forests and agricultural lands are essential to many human activities. To preserve these environments in the long term, conservation actions must be combined with the promotion of more
sustainable agricultural and forestry production methods. With this in mind, FFEM supports cross cutting projects that target forests, biodiversity, and the climate as well as degradation of land.
In this way, we contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
