Impacts of forest restoration on water yield: A systematic review

Abstract

Background

Enhancing water provision services is a common target in forest restoration projects worldwide due to growing concerns over freshwater scarcity. However, whether or not forest cover expansion or restoration can improve water provision services is still unclear and highly disputed.

Purpose

European large-scale farmland investments and the land-water-energy-food nexus

 

Highlights

• We explore the water-energy-food nexus for EU farmland investments.

• We estimate virtual water from crop production in the target countries.

• Virtual water is mostly green water consisting of 76% of the total water acquired.

• We analyse freshwater use between flexible, food and energy crops.

• Flexible/energy crops are responsible for most of the water acquired by EU investors.
