  • They begin by explaining the convept of regreening and how this phenomena occurs.
  • They six steps for development specialists to take on, including analysing successful regreening practices, forming communities of local stakeholders who value regreening efforts, tackling political problems affecting regreening efforts, developing effective communication strategies, creating agroforestry value chains, and developing research activities.
  • Finally, they offer regreening methods as a solutions to environmental problems in these areas, and list many positive impacts of regreening including benefits in nutrition, climate, and livelihoods.
