REGENERATING THE LIVING WORLD

HEALTHY ECOSYSTEMS

Every crop grown is part of a much bigger, and often delicate, ecosystem. Sometimes even small changes can have significant and unintended consequences for surrounding animals and plants, creating biodiversity risks that impact the smallest bees to the largest apes.

As much as 60% of global biodiversity loss is attributed to agriculture and food production. It is therefore vital the industry finds ways to protect and regenerate natural ecosystems in line with UN Sustainable Development Goals 13 and 15, which aim to tackle the impacts of a warming climate, promote sustainable ecosystems and halt biodiversity loss.

AtSource+ allows customers to measure changes in biodiversity and sustainable land use in a couple of different ways. From mapping forest cover and tracking the proportion of trees that are lost in any given farming area, to understanding the interventions that are being made to regenerate those landscapes. 

METRICS

The key metrics available in AtSource+ include:

Percentage of tree cover loss in farmer group area, using data from Global Forest Watch

Number of farmers in a high-risk farmer group trained on positive landscape management

Number of farmers in high risk farmer group whose GPS co-ordinates have been mapped

Number of shade trees distributed to farmer groups

PAVING THE WAY FOR CONSERVATION AND RESTORATION THROUGH FARMER EDUCATION

“I had never seen these animals before, but now I know and if they come to my farm, I just let them be. Olam taught me that they live just beside the mountain, near my farm, and sometimes we even hear them!”, said Mr. Aca, a Coffee farmer living near the habitats of Java hawk and Java gibbons.
