REDD+ stands for, Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation. REDD+ is a current program that identifies some of the challenges facing forest protection within major African countries. The program aims at eradicating global warming and reducing greenhouse gases within the continent. Some of the primary challenges facing REDD+ are poor cooperation from member countries, inadequate land for reforestation, high demand for land for settlement, and more so, an increasing demand for timber and timber products.
Development of water infrastructure has increased utilization of water resources within the African continent over the last decade. Additionally, that program facilitates efficient utilization of land since areas with inadequate rainfall are currently under irrigation.
According to most studies, the primary culprit of the long-term global warming trend in increased green house gasses because of global warming. The impacts are severe in the short-term as well as in the long-term analyses. Continuous heating on the earth’s surface has led to a gradual encroachment of areas that are proximal to arid areas. Destruction of water catchment areas and reduction in glaciers within the Polar Regions form primary repercussions of continuous warming within the earth’s surface.
In order to limit global warming to pre-industrial levels, a series of precautions need to be embraced in the current generation. The major approach is the reduction of global emissions from industries. Use of friendly sources of power such as solar power is very significant. These measures are attainable but will require a considerable period so as to shift from the current era of fossil fuels.
Climate scenarios are incidences through which initiatives by authorities, individuals, or organizations have been enhanced in an effort to facilitate climate protection. Various scenarios such as INVEST have been successfully reduced the global warming effect sustainably.
INVEST scenarios are programs that inform relevant authorities on land use. For instance, this scenario is used in Sumatra, Indonesia to recreate degraded forests through effective planning and issue of land for forestation. Palm oil trees and other practices of agro-forestry dominate the planning strategy of INVEST. Consequently, there is sufficient water for drinking, a clean environment, and sufficient wood products such as timber.
Tigers in Asia are gradually approaching extinction. Since the beginning of the 20th century, Tigers have reduced from 100000 to 3200, and some of the subspecies have are already extinct. Besides poaching, destruction of habitat areas has been the major problem affecting Tigers within Asia. Most of the Tigers are exposed to increased human interaction, which led to a killing of most of them. Additionally, there is insufficient prey, which has significantly reduced their numbers.
