Reversing tropical deforestation

Speaker: Eric Lambin, geographer and environmental scientist at University of Louvain and Stanford University.

Eric Lambin's research tries to better understand the causes and impacts of land use changes in different parts of the world. His current research focuses on how globalization affects land use and how private and public policies can reduce or even reverse tropical deforestation. This research is gaining in importance as avoiding deforestation and forest regeneration are increasingly recognized as essential nature climate solutions.
