Landscape Restoration

Biodiversity and ecosystem services underpin economic growth, sustainable development, and human well-being. Yet ongoing losses in biodiversity continue, resulting in grave reductions to ecosystem goods and services, and this negatively impacts economic prosperity and environmental sustainability. Overexploitation of natural resources has widely disrupted the equilibrium within local and regional ecological systems, and Earth’s ecosystems are now being degraded. Politically, we have failed to invest in ecosystem health and sustainability even as human well-being in the coming decades will largely depend on the conservation and restoration of ecosystems to contribute to long-term sustainable development.
