Restoring degraded landscapes and forestlands

Our Goal

Restore 150 million hectares of degraded landscapes and forestlands by 2020 and significantly increase the rate of global restoration thereafter, which would restore at least an additional 200 million hectares by 2030.

Assessing progress

Forest cover gain from FLR (ha)
The first criterion measures progress on biophysical restoration using two indicators. The first, forest cover gain, relates to tree cover increases within forest landscapes. The second, tree cover gain inside and outside forest landscapes, includes forest landscapes in addition to areas with sparse tree cover, such as agricultural lands.

Tree cover gain inside and outside the forest (ha)
The second indicator of increased cover gain is evaluated using satellite-based monitoring of biophysical progress. Analysis conducted for the NYDF 2019 Goal 5 Progress Report used a suite of data and tools to create a regional monitoring system to measure progress on forest restoration.
