CENN, within the framework of the “Achieving Land Degradation Neutrality Targets of Georgia through Restoration and Sustainable Management of Degraded Pasturelands” project, developed a video course on the following topic:
Holistic Planned Grazing and Land Degradation Neutrality
The course covers the following topics: (1) natural grassland systems feedback loops and equilibriums; (2) the understanding of correct pastureland management and the role of planned grazing tools; (3) the use of ruminant livestock as ecosystem restoration tools; (4) land degradation vs. land potential; (5) basic concepts of the land degradation conceptual framework, application of the LDN conceptual framework and issues with its application in pastoral environments; and (6) options and discussions concerning the application within the Georgian context for pastureland restoration and monitoring.
The Ministry of Environmental Protection and Agriculture of Georgia facilitates the “Achieving Land Degradation Neutrality Targets of Georgia through Restoration and Sustainable Management of Degraded Pasturelands” project and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) finances the project. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) implements the project. The Regional Environmental Centre for the Caucasus (REC Caucasus) is an executive organisation and the project partner is CENN.
