A proposal by Brazil to pool global resources and dedicate 10 years to promoting the restoration of more than 2 billion hectares of degraded land worldwide – a footprint larger than South America – will be central to discussions at an upcoming Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) summit in Nairobi.
The initiative backed by other Latin American countries to launch a U.N. Decade on Landscape Connectivity and Ecosystem Restoration, would put landscape restoration at the forefront of national agendas by shoring up country level efforts to meet U.N. Sustainable Development Goal(SDG) 15, Life on Land.
