Ecosystem Restoration


Ecosystem restoration —the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed— is regarded as a crucial approach to achieving Sustainable Development Goals and delivering multiple environmental, social, and economic benefits. Recognizing the potential of the private forest sector to support the sustainability of forest ecosystems and ecosystem restoration, this Initative will focus on the role of the forest sector in ecosystem restoration, in particular private forest sector companies and smallholders in collaboration with other stakeholders and in the context of their roles, rights and contributions.
