Rationale

GSAP

Restoring degraded natural ecosystems increases the area of habitat for their constituent species, enhances connectivity and restores full ecosystem function.

GSAP SKILLS

Ecological restoration, when implemented effectively and sustainably, contributes to protecting biodiversity, improving human health and wellbeing, increasing food and water security, delivering ecosystem services and economic prosperity, and supporting climate change mitigation, resilience, and adaptation. Combined with conservation and sustainable use of species, ecological restoration can transfer local, regional, and global environmental conditions from a state of degradation to net positive improvement.

Actions

2.1. Include all constituent species in ecosystem restoration and rewilding initiatives.
