El Salvador’s president urges U.N. support for decade of ecosystem restoration
- Published on
A major international effort to devote a decade to promoting the restoration and rehabilitation of degraded landscapes worldwide edged a step closer to fruition at the U.N. General Assembly in New York last week.
El Salvador’s President Salvador Sanchez Ceren urged member states to support a U.N. Decade for Ecosystem Restoration from 2021 to 2030, an idea first floated publicly by the country’s environment ministry in March at a Bonn Challenge event in Brazil.
“We would invite this general assembly to consider this initiative in a coordinated manner in order to tackle the ever faster loss of forests, soil degradation, and the degradation of ecosystems which have a negative impact on the well being of 3.2 billion people,” Ceren said.
