Our Annual Report looks back at the impact Commonland and partners made through holistic landscape restoration in 2022.

In a world where one football pitch of soil is degraded every 5 seconds, exacerbating climate change and threatening the food security of at least one-third of the global population, restoring landscapes at scale is urgent.

That’s why we support partners in over 23 countries to spark and scale landscape restoration for the benefit of nature, community, and business alike.

In 2022, we supported our local and regional partners to:

  • Help thousands of farmers transition to regenerative agricultural practices.
  • Reduce GHG emissions by sequestering 78,000+ tonnes of CO2 in soil or vegetation.
  • Restore nature and plant 200,000 + plants and trees.
  • Stimulate regenerative businesses, creating more than 850 jobs in landscapes.
  • Develop community governance of natural resources to ensure restoration benefits all.
  • Spread the landscape restoration movement – reaching more than 1 million people.
  • Among many other things!

Equipped with our 4 Returns Framework, people all over the world are working to regenerate natural ecosystems, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create sustainable livelihoods for local people, and restore hope to communities that a better future is possible.
