Cost to protect globally important forests falls disproportionately on those living closest

Thu, 17/08/2023 - 09:52

Local communities are not incentivised to protect tropical forests that are hugely valuable for global climate regulation, a new study has found. International funding could help smallholder farmers to boost yields on their existing land to incentivise long-term forest protection.


Global food security is a major research priority for UK and international science.

Cambridge Global Food Security is a virtual centre at the University of Cambridge. We promote an interdisciplinary approach to addressing the challenge of ensuring all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and preferences for an active and healthy life.
