A flourishing life on land is the foundation for our life on this planet. We damaged our land through deforestation, loss of natural habitats and land degradation.

Achieving this objective requires bold action to restore terrestrial ecosystems, such as forests, to end desertification, to protect biodiversity, and to eliminate poaching and animal trafficking.
