Resource management of Madagascar’s grasslands

Country: Madagascar

Delivery Partner:  Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Summary: Employing data-driven strategies, we will transform perceptions of Madagascar’s grasslands from barren wastelands to valuable biodiversity rich ecological assets that can support human livelihoods and carbon sequestration. We will enable sustainable reforestation by identifying optimal locations that enrich ecosystems and safeguard local livelihoods. Our vision is to redefine the intersection of reforestation and grassland preservation, fostering an understanding of these ecosystems’ critical role, promoting local prosperity, and strengthening Madagascar’s resilience to climate change.
