By all means, we will not easily forget 2020 as it was COVID-19’s first year. A pandemic that, like an inverted magnifying glass, opened the world’s eyes to the relationship between deforestation, natural degradation, zoonosis, healthcare and local food production. Ecosystems form the basis of our existence. They provide us with food, water, clean air, a stable climate, and a pleasant living environment. Without a balance between nature and people, we cannot exist.
Our ambition is to increase our efforts and work with many partners in 2021 to achieve our goal: to restore 100 million hectares of degraded land before 2040, using the 4 Returns Framework. And we’re happy to find a fast-growing movement, from practitioners to policy actors, that pays attention to the great work of our time: restoring ecosystems.
In the Annual Report 2020, you can learn more about the challenges we faced and lessons we learned with our landscape and policy partners in the field to create investable holistic landscape initiatives.
