High quality restoration action - Our mandate for 2023
Forests store enormous amounts of carbon, harbour over half of biodiversity on land and support complex ecosystems upon which life depends. We must protect what is left and, crucially, we must restore our forests in the right way, with the right trees, in the right places for the long term.
Trillion Trees has committed to bringing 20 million hectares of forest landscapes into high-quality restoration. Focused on restoring degraded land where it’s needed most, Trillion Trees’ restoration portfolio prioritises landscapes where we can deliver positive benefits to the communities in and around forests, protect and restore biodiversity, and secure the greatest potential for future carbon sequestration.
Forest restoration needs to happen at scale if we are to make the impact that’s needed. This requires significant investment. In 2023, we’ll launch our ReForest Catalyst mechanism designed to kick-start the development of extensive restoration initiatives that will support projects to build, test and deliver sustainable financing for forest restoration at scale.
