Reforestation as a climate change strategy

Video realizzato nella zona alto-andina del Perù, commissionato dalla FAO.
Changes in precipitation patterns caused by climate change in the Peruvian Andes jeopardize downstream water provision and cause landslides and erosion. The project aimed at recovering the vegetative cover of the upper parts of mountain ecosystems through the promotion of agroforestry and reforestation practices, which constitute comprehensive climate change adaptation strategies to restore soil humidity, improve water infiltration in the soil and reduce erosion and the likelihoods of runoffs.
