Lima climate talks: pledge to plant 20m hectares of trees. Eight Latin American countries have pledged to combat deforestation and restore an area of land twice the size of Britain by 2020.

Lima climate talks: pledge to plant 20m hectares of trees

The move is part of a global plan to plant hundreds of millions of trees and save over 1bn tonnes of CO2 a year. Much of the land to be replanted and improved in Peru, Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina and Costa Rica, has been deforested in the past 15 years and is now used for subsistence farming or is unusable after being intensively farmed. But it will be restored either as natural forests, or as “agro-forestry” which mixes trees with crop lands and “silvo-pasture” which combines trees with animals.

According to the World Resources Institute (WRI), one of five research groups working with business and government on the ‘Initiative 20x20’, of the 4.2 gigatonnes of greenhouse gases emitted by Latin American and Caribbean countries in 2012, nearly half were from agriculture and the loss of forests. “It is ambitious. Greater Patagonian Trail - Wikiexplora. Summary Greater Patagonian Trail Section 1: Pass 2540 m viewing to Laguna Los Hornitos. Image: Jan Dudeck The Greater Patagonian Trail is a long distance trail that leads you right through the heart of the legendary Patagonian Andes. It's a stunningly beautiful and diverse trail that crosses volcanic fields, idyllic Andean valleys, snow covered mountain ranges, lush green forests and deep blue lakes and rivers.

On this 1500 km long trail you will meet herdsmen with their animals, indigenous Pehuenche on their homeland and courageous settlers that ventured into a challenging backcountry. The Greater Patagonian Trail is not an official trail that was planned and set up by a government agency. In several parts the trail branches into different routes giving you various choises. Without any doubt substantially longer and more demanding hikes have been done on this continent. Images Used Trails Greater Patagonian Trail Section 2: Laguna Dial.
