UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030: Partnership, Outreach and Communication Strategy - Summary Version

United Nations Environment Programme (2020)

In the context of the Decade, ecosystem restoration refers to a wide continuum of practices ranging from tree planting to increasing the capacity of agricultural fields to store carbon and the recovery of fish stock along resilient coasts and reefs. What all these approaches have in common, however, is that they offer positive actions: The more we do in support of restoration, the better the outcome for our shared planet. Lately, this positive message has captured the imagination of a wider public – especially in relation to trees: Countries have set new records, planting millions of trees within just one day, fundraisers in support of reforestation raise millions of Dollars in record-time and scientific publications debating the global restoration potential make splashes in mainstream media.
