Ecosystems are the main backbone supporting all life on Earth, and their health determines the health of the planet and people. The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration aims to prevent, halt, and reverse the degradation of ecosystems across the globe. It addresses poverty eradication, climate change, and mass extinction. Local initiatives on managing ecosystems are the most effective tool and the cornerstone for achieving biodiversity and ecosystem conservation goals.
Sixteen International Land Coalition (ILC) member organizations from eight countries in South Asia, South-East Asia, and Central Asia have pledged to foster ILC Commitment on Locally-managed Ecosystems and joined together in a multi-stakeholder Initiative called ILC Asia Platform on Locally-Managed Ecosystems, which aims to strengthen the tenurial security of communities for ensuring their ecosystems' management. Their efforts need to be recognized as an effective response to increasing economic pressures and the current climate crisis, by documenting, replicating, and advocating for policies and programs through people-centered land governance principles.
Understanding the importance and urgency of global action to restore ecosystems, our working group has decided to organize a knowledge-sharing virtual event on the global movement of ecosystem restoration.
To inform on the Launch of the UN Decade and discuss regional opportunities and potential partnerships to contribute to the implementation of the Decade’s Strategy.
This event is for
UN Decade Secretariat representatives, international partners, donor organizations, ILC Asia members, non-member organizations, general public
