"Pour une utilité naturelle de toutes les gouttes de pluie..." Voilà une phrase qui dit peu et TOUT à la fois, en cette période d'affolement des médias et des réseaux autour de la #canicule, de la #sécheresse et du manque d'#eau... (1/4)
Les solutions autour de l'économie ou du recyclage de l'eau, d'une simple meilleure "gestion" sont certes nécessaires mais TRÈS insuffisantes sans une #régénération massive du cycle de l'eau (2/4)
En commençant par Ralentir, Répartir, Infiltrer et Stocker DANS le sol chaque goutte d'eau de pluie qui tombe, dans chaque bassin versant ET en révégétalisant massivement (#agroforesterie, #agroécologie, #reforestation) pour créer littéralement la #pluie. (3/4)

If you ever wanted to acquire #carbonoffsets, you've surely faced the question of categorization. Here is an easy taxonomy 👇 🧵
1/ Two weeks ago I highlighted the difference between carbon emission reduction and removal projects.

The idea of #CarbonReduction is to pay others to reduce emissions in your place. But your output remains in the system. One plus zero.
2/ #CarbonRemoval on the other hand scrubs carbon directly from the atmosphere. Plus one, minus one.

But technically, the #carbonmarket makes no difference. A ton is a ton.

🧵: It’s the 30th birthday of Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve—the largest reserve in Central America.

It covers 19% of Guatemala at the heart of one of Mesoamerica’s #5GreatForests. “It’s a model of community conservation,” says Roan McNab, director of WCS Guatemala.

Over the past 10 years, 380,000 acres of forest in the MBR have been recovered from ranchers illegally occupying land in the reserve.

Also, in the eastern MBR’s largest forest block, #reforestation outpaced deforestation for the first time in history between 2016 and 2017.

Today, the MBR generates economic and environmental benefits for #Guatemala. It supports 1,000s of individuals who earn their livelihoods by harvesting timber and non-timber forest products sustainably.
