Restoration of degraded ecosystems lies at the heart of building a stable climate, mitigating weather extremes and disease burdens, ensuring food production to meet the needs of a growing population, and sustaining global livability.
Yet, the world is currently witnessing the rapid degradation of ecosystems, endangering the very foundation of life. The gap between the necessary investments to restore degraded ecosystems and prevent further deterioration and the actual investments being made remains substantial. Governments are still grappling with the design and implementation of effective and efficient
ecosystem restoration policies.
