Official Supporting Partner of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
Greenpop has been selected to be an official Supporting Partner of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
The primary aim of the Decade, which runs from 2021 – 2030, is to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems worldwide. In addition the Decade aims to inspire and support organisations, communities and individuals to collaborate and develop the appropriate skill sets for catalysing and successfully implementing restoration initiatives across the world.
Led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (UN Decade) is a rallying call for the protection and revival of ecosystems all around the world, for the benefit of people and nature.
As a Supporting Partner, Greenpop will be assisting with the promotion of the Decade’s key activities and priorities, as well as reporting our restoration KPI’s where it supports the goals of the Decade.
“Ecosystems support all life on earth. The healthier our ecosystems are, the healthier the planet and its people.”
Ecosystem restoration means assisting in the recovery of ecosystems that have been degraded or destroyed, as well as conserving the ecosystems that are still intact.
All kinds of natural as well as human-made ecosystems can be restored, including forests, farmlands, cities, wetlands and oceans. Healthier ecosystems, with richer biodiversity, yield greater benefits for the planet and its people. These include, among many others, more fertile soils, bigger yields of timber and fish, and larger stores of greenhouse gases.
Restoring ecosystems, large and small, protects and improves not only our planet but also the livelihoods of billions of people who depend on them.
