NAIROBI (Landscape News) –If landscape degradation brings huge costs to society and restoration brings impressive returns, why we are not implementing it, queried Robert Nasi, director general of the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) on Wednesday.
“We need a paradigm change: from seeing it as a high cost activity with no financial returns to land owners and only environmental benefits, to one which provides increased incomes to landowners, creates jobs, and results in ecosystem goods and services for society as a whole,” he told delegates attending the Global Landscapes Forum conference in Nairobi.
