Africa’s wildlife is disappearing at an alarming rate, encroached on by a human population set to double by 2050. The latest European Commission report on conserving the continent’s biodiversity is entitled ‘Larger than Elephants’, reflecting that the species and landscapes at risk go far beyond Africa’s iconic mammal. The impact of species loss and environmental degradation will in turn be much ‘larger than wildlife’: it will affect local livelihoods, climate change, migration, peace and security.

There is much discussion in the development arena about the struggle ahead to feed the seven plus billion, of the methods proposed towards food security, building resilience, safeguarding water resources and so on. But few stop to ponder the basic ingredient in all of this: the very land under our feet, and the starting point of all agricultural productivity. At the European Development Days, EuropeAid hosted a Lab session dedicated to the relevance of soils in development policy, featuring the release earlier this year of the first Soil Atlas of Africa.

Around the tables at the Climate Change Conference in Paris, nations are striving to reach consensus on how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and damage to the environment. To turn recommendations into results, all stakeholders need to be able to participate and be heard in the planning stages. Though they receive less coverage, the same principle holds true for the hundreds of projects addressing climate change in developing countries.
The European Union’s Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) initiative calls on the involvement of civil society in the negotiation and implementation of their Voluntary Partnership Agreements (VPA) with timber exporting countries. But while getting a voice at the negotiating table is one thing, being able to contribute meaningfully during the full VPA process is another.
