The Bonn Challenge and ECCA30

The Bonn Challenge is a global effort to bring 150 million hectares of the world's degraded and deforested lands into restoration by 2020 and 350 million hectares by 2030. It was launched by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which acts as its Secretariat, and the Government of Germany in 2011. More information is available here: https://www.bonnchallenge.org/ 

ECCA30 is a regional initiative for Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia that seeks to bring 30 million hectares of degraded and deforested land into restoration by 2030. ECCA30 was launched by UNECE, IUCN, the World Bank and the World Resources Institute to secure additional commitments in support of the Bonn Challenge and accelerate the implementation of forest landscape restoration in the region.  More information is available here: https://infoflr.org/bonn-challenge/regional-initiatives/ecca30
