On the Road to the Bonn Challenge
By the GPFLR
Two years into the Bonn Challenge, the world is well on its way to achieving the goal of restoring 150 million hectares of the planet’s degraded and deforested lands.
Already over 20 million hectares of land have been pledged for restoration from countries as diverse as Brazil, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Rwanda, and the United States. A further 30 million hectares of land have been identified for possible pledges in 2014.
A new video released by The Global Partnership on Forest Landscape Restoration, a network of governments, individuals and institutions devoted to supporting restoration efforts around the world, describes the motivation behind the Bonn Challenge and provides an update on progress in 2013.
