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. Agriculture is also reliant on land health and on fertility. Land ecosystems, such as forests, harbour a staggering biodiversity of plants and animals. 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.
