GLF creates the knowledge around 5 cross cutting themes:


Champion holistic approaches that uphold indigenous rights and livelihoods, and connecting organizations and governments to fulfill global restoration pledges.



Develop innovative financial instruments to fund restoration, and strengthening the role of certification and accountability frameworks across supply chains.



Facilitate reform in land tenure and contribute to land-based investments that safeguard the rights of women and indigenous peoples, while enhancing opportunities for smallholders.


Food and Livelihoods

Balance nutritional security with biodiversity, forests, climate and other goals to move beyond the notion that enhancing food security and reducing environmental degradation are mutually exclusive entities.


Measuring Progress

Engage partners to identify and launch the latest knowledge and instruments required to measure and track progress towards the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

We need blended knowledge, we need to learn from the work of others. Then we can move on to blended finance for landscape restoration.

The Decade has so many co-benefits for SDGs that go way beyond climate change. Restoration includes measures to create green jobs, help biodiversity, help farm income, stabilize water supply for big cities, stabilize food supply.

It’s important to know that people are not sitting down, people are taking action. And women are at the forefront of these actions.
