A textual digest of new UN resolution for restoration
- Published on
In Agenda item 14 in the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly on 1 March 2019, Member States adopted a proposal declaring 2021 to 2030 to be the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. Roughly a year in the works, this new endeavor will see the global body focus on mobilizing policymakers, private finance and the general public to address the 2 billion hectares of degraded landscapes worldwide.
The adopted resolution is an amalgam of facts; intentions; pleas; and the myriad other initiatives, agreements, events and decades to which it’s related. Reading of the original is still encouraged (it’s only six pages), but here, we’ve digested it into an easy summary 10 points to know.
