Combating land degradation is one of global society’s major environmental challenges and directly affects the lives and futures of millions around the world; yet, simultaneously, there is ever-increasing pressure on this diminishing resource to meet our growing demands. Landscape change, often exacerbated by poor practices, dogma, convention and a lack of capacity, can be daunting and disempowering and leads to severe and long-lasting ecological, social and economic decline.
But, there are many examples where such land and natural resource challenges have been addressed in ways that provide enduring benefits to people while enhancing ecological integrity. Future Terrains’ experience in this context in the public and private sectors and civil society, and across a range of disciplines, land-uses and restoration projects, offers an integrated perspective of the opportunities around dynamic landscapes and bespoke approaches for realising them.
