“There has never been a more urgent need to revive damaged ecosystems than now. […] Ecosystems support all life on Earth. The healthier our ecosystems are, the healthier the planet – and its people. The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration aims to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems on every continent and in every ocean. It can help to end poverty, combat climate change and prevent a mass extinction. It will only succeed if everyone plays a part.” (Source: United Nations Environment Organization, 2021).
Our planet needs the recovery of ecosystems that have been degraded or destroyed by human activities, as well as conserving the ecosystems that are still intact. Investments in the growing potentials of the planetary biocapacity and the richness of the plurality of ecosystems and biological diversity offer us a real creation of values, that enhance and strengthen all life on earth, including humans.
