UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration Expectations

What is the Decade?

Land degradation is negatively impacting at least 3.2 billion people and costing over 10 per cent of the annual global gross product in loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. Reversing degradation of land and marine ecosystems can provide more than one-third of the climate change mitigation required by 2030 to remain below a 2°C increase in average global temperatures and at the same time conserve biodiversity, increase food and water security, and help achieve the sustainable development goals. The UN Decade provides a timeline upon which to accelerate and pull together multiple U.N. development, environment and climate frameworks already in place.
