Green infrastructure integration into the agriculture sector

Did you know that people have converted 37 % of the earth’s land surface into farms and pastures? Decades of intensive farming practices have taken their toll on the environment and people agriculture is thought to cause around 70 % of the projected loss of terrestrial biodiversity. Moreover, the global decline of insect pollinators is mostly caused by the use of pesticides in agriculture.

Because agriculture relies heavily on nature, unsustainable practices initiate a vicious circle where both people and nature end up as losers.

CEEweb for Biodiversity supports the creation and maintenance of sustainable farming systems which can ensure the production of safer and healthier food and the provision of conditions for a thriving countryside with secured livelihoods for farmers. Well-preserved nature is a prerequisite for those systems, as it delivers a whole array of benefits for farming, including pollination, appropriate nutrient cycling, pest control, water regulation, and soil protection.

Our new brochure on green infrastructure integration into the agriculture sector presents the most recent scientific evidence, best practice examples, and recommendations for having more nature in our fields.
