At our forests’ frontiers, where agricultural expansion is driving increasing fragmentation and deforestation, critical ecosystems are disappearing at alarming rates, compromising biodiversity as well as local communities’ livelihoods and food security. In this session, the BirdLife Partnership explores ways to secure these forests that also impact positively on local communities. Should we invest in unsustainable agricultural expansion or a forest-positive solution? This is one decision among many that will affect an entire landscape, its wildlife and communities.
