“Restoring the Earth: the next decade” – latest Unasylva journal edition release

Plenaries, sessions and launchpads will be available in three languages: English, Spanish and French.

The 252nd edition of international forestry journal Unasylva, “Restoring the Earth: the next decade”, is devoted to building momentum for the restoration agenda to 2030, particularly in light of the opportunities presented by major restoration commitments such as the Bonn Challenge, the New York Declaration on Forests, AFR100, Initiative 20×20 and the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030.

The Unasylva journal, established in 1947, is the FAO’s longest-running periodical. It aims to bring globally-significant developments in forestry to a broad range of readers, and features contributors from across the planet and from a range of sectors and institutions.

At the launch of Unasylva 252, panelists from civil society, international organizations and national governments will share stories of the participatory process that lead to the edition’s creation; highlight important findings of the edition; raise awareness around the opportunities associated with restoration and the UN Decade; and emphasize the vibrancy of restoration efforts at the global level.
