Restoration and rehabilitation cases in agricultural landscapes
Examples occur along the full spectrum from restoration programs (where agricultural lands are being restored to local indigenous ecosystems to program) to rehabilitation and mitigation (to improve biodiversity values and protect ecosystems from harm). In between these two ends of the spectrum lie projects that integrate nature conservation into a farming landscape.
Note: Some of the following examples also include a mix of the three categories as part of an integrated whole.
