Land restoration has tremendous potential to help the world limit climate change and achieve its aims for sustainable development, according to a new study by the International Resource Panel (IRP). Hot on the heels of the recent report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which found that climate change was reducing land’s ability to sustain humanity, the IRP projects forward to examine the likely results if rehabilitate land. In doing so, the IRP found positive spin-offs to support all 17 Sustainable Development Goals agreed to by the world’s nations as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Land Restoration for Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals was released at the 14th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, in New Delhi, India.
