Every song has a dance, imagine if a song on tree planting goes viral. I have a tree to plant, dig, dig and plant. A tree cannot make a forest, but many trees. One voice, one song to restore our land.

Development partners need to listen, be adaptable and understand that restoration will take place in different forms and shapes according to needs, and there is no one blueprint

We spark and sustain conversations on sustainability. We are the world’s largest, science-led multi-sectoral platform, engaging year-round through global, regional and local events, national policy dialogues and online Digital Summits.
Evidence sits at the core of our platform. We produce, gather and disseminate diverse types of knowledge —scientific, traditional, practical — with the aim to facilitate co-learning and create impact across our five main research themes.
The Forum is not a static entity, but a dynamic movement that grows stronger with your involvement, ideas and innovation. Be a part of it!
