IUFRO welcomes the UN General Assembly's declaring 2021–2030 the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. Read a joint UN Environment & FAO press release and find out more about IUFRO's forest and landscape restoration activities!

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, declared on March 1st by the UN General Assembly, aims to massively scale up the restoration of degraded and destroyed ecosystems as a proven measure to fight the climate crisis and enhance food security, water supply and biodiversity.

The Decade, a global call to action, will draw together political support, scientific research and financial muscle to massively scale up restoration from successful pilot initiatives to areas of millions of hectares.
