UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration

Ecosystems support all life on Earth. The healthier our ecosystems are, the healthier the planet - and its people. The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration aims to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems on every continent and in every ocean. It can help to end poverty, combat climate change and prevent a mass extinction. GRÓ LRT is an official Supporting Partner of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
