The Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) and the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration Advisory Board, in collaboration with over 1,000 delegates at SER2023, recently issued a significant Call to Action during the closing ceremony of the 10th World Conference on Ecological Restoration.
This Call to Action underscores the pressing need to expand effective, standards-based ecological restoration on a global scale. It highlights the importance of reestablishing a harmonious relationship between humanity and nature, particularly in light of recent droughts, floods, and fires. The Call to Action focuses on several key areas, including recogniсing and upholding the rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities, encouraging broad societal engagement in ecological restoration, advocating for policy realignment and funding support from governments, and urging the global business community to invest in the restoration of degraded ecosystems.
This development is of significant interest to the REST-COAST project due to its alignment with the project's objectives. REST-COAST is closely monitoring the progress of this collaboration, recogniсing its potential to advance ecological restoration efforts and promote sustainability.
