Restoration is now a critical component of national agendas worldwide. Fulfilling the promises of the U.N. Decade of Ecosystem Restoration could radically reduce atmospheric carbon, secure the future of millions of rural peoples and save hundreds of thousands of threatened species from extinction. Yet, in the past 20 years, we’ve failed to fully leverage the potential of restoration to meet the scale of the planetary need. As we prepare for the coming Decade, how do we learn from the past to successfully restore the ecosystems necessary to avoid environmental and social collapse? Leaders from across the world will provide key recommendations for how to deliver on the promises of restoration.
