Opening Plenary – How can restoration help the world recover from the climate, biodiversity and Covid-19 crises?

This session explores the potential of restoration as a way to “build back better,” including opportunities for scaled-up restoration including through the launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

It will also examine key implementation challenges for restoration, including the need to better understand how it can address global challenges and to enable policy, finance mobilization, capacity, and knowledge sharing.

Finally, with an eye towards addressing implementation challenges, the event will introduce a new Implementation Hub for restoration.
