Action Plan for the Decade on Ecosystem Restoration in Latin America and the Caribbean

United Nations Environment Programme (2021)

This document describes the Action Plan that Latin America and the Caribbean wishes to undertake for the next ten years to promote, improve, accelerate and scale-up ecosystem restoration in the region. It is a regional-level voluntary effort that focuses on cooperation mechanisms and enabling conditions designed to effectively support countries according to their national needs, priorities and capacities, while promoting synergies and complementarity with existing initiatives. The overarching vision is that, by 2030, Latin America and the Caribbean have significantly advanced in defining policies and plans and implementing projects in restoration of marine, terrestrial and inland water ecosystems at a spatial scale relevant to revert the negative impacts of degradation and, as a result, ecosystems and natural habitats across the region are in process of being restored, protected and managed sustainably.
