UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration



What is the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration?

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, running from 2021 to 2030, is a global initiative led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Its goal is to prevent, halt, and reverse the degradation of ecosystems worldwide. This initiative covers both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and aims to massively scale up restoration efforts globally.

What is a World Restoration Flagship?

A World Restoration Flagship is one of the best examples of large-scale and long-term ecosystem restoration. These flagships are recognized under the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration for their adherence to the 10 Restoration Principles set by the UN. They serve as leading models for how ecosystems can be restored effectively and sustainably.

What are the 10 Restoration Principles of the UN Decade?

The 10 Restoration Principles guide the restoration efforts under the UN Decade. They include ensuring stakeholder inclusion, basing actions on the best available science, integrating restoration into the broader landscape, and aiming for sustainable long-term maintenance of restored ecosystems. These principles are designed to ensure that restoration efforts are effective, inclusive, and sustainable.

How is the progress of the World Restoration Flagships monitored?

The progress of the World Restoration Flagships is monitored through the Framework for Ecosystem Restoration Monitoring (FERM). This platform provides a way to track and report on the status and success of restoration efforts globally, ensuring transparency and accountability in the process.

What commitments have countries made related to ecosystem restoration?

Countries globally have committed to restoring 1 billion hectares of land as part of various international agreements, including the Paris Climate Agreement, the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, the Land Degradation Neutrality targets, and the Bonn Challenge. These commitments are part of the broader effort to mitigate climate change, conserve biodiversity, and combat desertification.
