ADVISORY: Kenya to Announce Restoration Commitment and Launch National Opportunity Maps by Christin VanZant — last modified Sep 06, 2016 05:39 PM
Landscape restoration is a great opportunity for Kenya’s people and lands, and builds on the tradition of the Green Belt Movement. Trees play an important role in landscapes, helping to provide multiple ecosystem services such as stabilizing soils, providing important habitat for wildlife, as well as keeping soils fertile for agricultural use. By introducing more trees into landscapes through landscape restoration, whether as natural forests or as mixed agroforestry systems, and through better land management practices, degradation can be reversed, reestablishing restoring productivity and resilience. Kenya is the first African country to do a comprehensive national restoration opportunity assessment that was then used to inform their commitment to the Bonn Challenge and AFR100. The assessment is reflected in the National Opportunity Maps that will launch at the event.

Making Blue Swimming Crab Fishing Sustainable in Vietnam by Christin VanZant — last modified Nov 02, 2016 06:40 PM
Many locals rely on fishing for these crabs as a source of income. But, as one fisher noted, it’s grown more and more difficult to earn a living this way in recent years. As international demand for the meat from this crab grows, so too does the number of box trap and bottom-gillnet fishers swooping into the region from other provinces to get a share of the profit. And without proper regulations and detailed data, overharvesting the crab population is a very real threat.
