The most important landscapes left are the ones ‘in between’
From the announcement of a new U.N. ambition to restore ecosystems to a landmark report declaring the potential extinction of 1 million forms of life on Earth, the first half of 2019 has been a quick series of shining peaks and grim valleys for climate change news.
It’s also a time – and has been for some time – when headlines often speak of climate change in general terms, without site-specific context or solutions attached.
Robert Nasi, in his role as director general of the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), serves as a watchdog. Everything that comes across the desk of the forester – one of the foremost in the world – is put up to critical review and imaginative alteration, which he here shares in a mid-year review.
And as he assesses the peaks and valleys in real terms, it is, he says, the middle ground that matters most for the future.
