A commitment from the heart of South America

In December of 2014 Peru announced forest landscape restoration and conservation commitments to Initiative 20x20 at a side event to the 20th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC in Lima, Peru. 3.2 million hectares of restoration from these commitments are formal contributions to the Bonn Challenge goal.
