A step-by-step guide to restoring the planet’s health

The health of people and the planet is only as good as the ecosystems on which we all rely. Restoring degraded ecosystems – for example, by planting trees, cleaning up riverbanks, or simply allowing nature to recover – increases their societal and biodiversity benefits.

We won’t be able to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals or the Paris Climate Agreement unless we restore ecosystems. On the other hand, ecosystems are complex and diverse, and their restoration necessitates careful planning and patience.

The Ecosystem Restoration Playbook, which is intended for all interested individuals and stakeholder groups, outlines three ways to get involved in ecosystem restoration during and after the UN Decade:

  1. Taking action, such as starting or supporting a restoration project on the ground
  2. Making informed decisions, such as purchasing only sustainable products and altering one’s diet
  3. Using your voice to advocate for ecosystem restoration and conservation

Forests, farmlands, grassland and savannahs, rivers and lakes, oceans and coasts, towns and cities, peatlands, and mountains are among the eight ecosystems described in the 21-page guide. It also explains how everyone in society, from individuals and community groups to businesses and governments, can join #GenerationRestoration, a worldwide movement to restore ecosystems for the benefit of people and nature.
