The Nordic Aichi restoration project

How can the Nordic countries implement the CBD-target on restoration of 15% of degraded ecosystems within 2020?

The Convention of Biological Diversity commits the parties to halt the loss of biodiversity within 2020. For accomplishing this task, the Aichi targets have been established. Aichi target 15 aims at restoring 15% of damaged ecosystems by 2020. The Nordic countries are parties to CBD, and committed to the Aichi targets. This project will establish a basis that may be used by the management and political authorities in the Nordic countries for achieving Aichi target 15 on restoration of degraded ecosystems. The report explores the possibilities, limitations and challenges on how ecological restoration can contribute to the Aichi target, based on available knowledge and existing statistics on degraded land and restoration experiences in the Nordic countries and Estonia. This is intended as a contribution for future work at the national level and in local communities.

Hide / Show Abstract

In 2010 the Convention of Biological Diversity formulated 20 strategic targets for 2020 towards halting the loss of biodiversity, called the Aichitargets. In particular two of these targets address the need for the restoration of degraded land. The Nordic countries are committed to the CBD and the Aichi targets. The status and need for restoration of degraded land has been documented worldwide, including in this part of the world.
