A good look at the erosion damage caused by inappropriate land management (or lack of - basically the exploitation of the environment since invasion, and what is effectively mining of the natural asset wealth). Lush swampy meadows have been turned into moonscapes with deeply eroded gullies that have no hope of breaching banks and recharging floodplains. Countless tonnes of fertile soil have been gouged from the landscape - drying it in the process.
It also looks at some scientific monitoring of remediation works by Peter Andrews along the lines of Natural Sequence Farming techniques. Well worth a watch to see the contrast. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aiFfWrVzJWU
Peter Andrews OAM on the continuing desertification throughout history, and how the war on plants is causing erosion, destruction of the hydrological cycle, and warming the climate, and how Natural Sequence Farming techniques can repair all of that ... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=V5yEjA5DMgc
The Incredible Blueprint of the Ancient Australian Landscape
With Australia experiencing it's worst drought in over 100 years, and with the United Nations declaring 2021-2030 as the decade of Ecosystem Restoration, Peter Andrews and The Australian Landscape Institute have an aim and a blueprint for restoring the Australian Landscape, and leading the world to do the same ... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5XRt0dAUK1g
" .... the IPCC report itself makes frequent references to the importance of Indigenous knowledge. It says the following, for example: "Agricultural practices that include indigenous and local knowledge can contribute to overcoming the combined challenges of climate change, food security, biodiversity conservation, and combating desertification and land degradation."
"they projected that we may hope to sequester around 333 gigatons of carbon in all terrestrial ecosystems by the end of the century, the equivalent of drawing down atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions by 156 parts per million."
