UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030

Did you know? The United Nations has declared 2021 to 2030 as the decade of ecosystem restoration to rally people from all over the world to protect and revive the earth’s natural ecosystems for people and planet. With the tagline “Prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems worldwide,” this campaign also aims to stop the continued degradation of the planet and provides opportunities to help turn the tide on the destruction of the planet’s critical natural ecosystems such as oceans and coasts, forests, farmlands, freshwater areas, mountains, grasslands, shrublands and savannahs, peatlands and urban areas.  It aims to showcase successful government-led and private initiatives to halt ecosystem degradation; restore those ecosystems that have already been degraded; enhance knowledge exchange on what works and why (policy, economics and biophysical aspects), and how to implement restoration at scale; connect initiatives working in the same landscape, region, or topic to increase efficiency and impact; create links between ecosystem restoration opportunities and initiatives with businesses interested in building a robust portfolio of sustainable production and impact investment; and bring a broader spectrum of actors on board, especially from sectors that are not traditionally involved, by demonstrating the importance of ecosystem restoration to conservation as well as generations of social and economic benefits.
