Defining a landscape approach and why it’s so important
19 Dec 19
Justin Adams and Ian Welsh
Justin Adams, executive director of the Tropical Forest Alliance talks with Innovation Forum’s Ian Welsh about the urgency for collective action on deforestation and its associated social challenges.
They discuss the tensions and tradeoffs necessary to deliver sustainable landscapes, and the partnerships locally and at a global level required. Adams describes how the Amazon Soy Moratorium has had successes and failures in protecting forests in Brazil – and the unintended consequences such approaches can have for biome clearance elsewhere.
