The healthier our ecosystems are, the healthier the planet are. On February 7, 2022, the International Department, Research Office and other departments of CBCGDF held a working discussion meeting on the relevant deployment of the "United Nations Ecosystem Restoration Decade" applications.   


In 2019, under the leadership of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations General Assembly announced the the United Nations Decade of Ecosystem Restoration, a ten-year plan from 2021 to 2030. The United Nations Decade of Ecosystem Restoration aims to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of terrestrial and marine ecosystems, calling for the protection and restoration of millions of hectares of ecosystems.


Restoring ecosystems can help eradicate poverty, combat climate change and prevent mass extinctions. And this initiative will only succeed if everyone is involved.


China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation has long been committed to biodiversity conservation and green development. Dr.Zhou Jinfeng chaired the meeting and emphasized that the current ecosystem restoration project requires a Nature-based solution, but also a Human-centered solution. The application of this flagship plan is a great opportunity to disseminate the achievements of state-of-the-art ecological civilization construction. The restoration project involved major hot topics such as biodiversity conservation, climate change, and marine ecosystem restoration, Experts from many countries, including the CBCGDF International Elephant Expert Group, participated in the discussion.


At present, the CBCGDF's projects on coral restoration in Hainan and the Pu'er elephant habitat ecosystem are still under application. Experts and scholars are welcome to participate in this application.
