Valuing biodiversity to restore resilient landscapes – The role of transformative policies

Digital Room 3

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration promotes an inclusive restoration approach and biodiverse ecosystems, while also incrementing human well-being. Yet, implementation on the ground often reveals the conflict between the economic and ecological aspects of restoration. The forest landscape restoration (FLR) approaches and the development of sustainable value chains can only be successful in the long term if they are embedded in an enabling policy environment. Thus, transformative change is needed which allows for the integration of biodiversity’s value in prevailing economic and financial systems. This session aims to explore how environmental policy instruments can trigger this transformative change and hence solve this conflict in ecosystem restoration.
