WRI’s new report, Roots of Prosperity: The Economics and Finance of Restoring Land, aims to help governments and other decision-makers to leverage financial resources and develop effective policy to scale up forest and landscape restoration. The report draws on research and case studies from around the world, revealing that restoring degraded land has the potential to deliver up to thirty times the initial investment in benefits. It discusses the seven barriers to finance for restoration and outlines policies and financial mechanisms that will unlock capital.
