JANUARY 2023 - Estelle's new paper is out

Estelle's paper on 'Drivers and consequences of archetypical shifting cultivation transitions' just came out in People and Nature.

The paper looks at shifting cultivation, where smallholder farmers apply a cycle of clearing, cultivating, and fallowing, which is in decline across the tropics. But what happens on the land afterwards? The authors identified eight transitions to alternative land systems, reviewed their drivers, and studied their consequences for people and nature. The review revealed that new land systems may not necessarily represent an improvement over previous conditions, challenging common wisdom. (The above section is paraphrased from the plan language summary of the paper).
