Taking the Bonn Challenge to Rio

Submitted on Brief , August 4, 2020
The Bonn Challenge and the three Rio conventions all acknowledge the important contribution of forests and land to the achievement of their respective goals and objectives. Many forest and land-use solutions that contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation also combat desertification, land degradation, and conserve or restore biodiversity. This brief presents a snapshot of opportunities for integrated measures to increase restoration ambition and action and demonstrate impact in a complementary and mutually supporting manner.
