Abandoned Farmland Restoration @ProjectDrawdown #ClimateSolutions
Degraded farmland is often abandoned, but need not be. Restoration can bring these lands back into productivity and sequester carbon in the process.
To protect forests from deforestation for new farmland, restoring abandoned cropland and pastureland is key. Restoration can mean the return of native vegetation, the establishment of tree plantations, or the introduction of regenerative farming methods.
