UNITED NATIONS DECADE ON ECOSYSTEMS RESTORATION: “PREVENTING, HALTING, AND REVERSING THE DEGRADATION OF ECOSYSTEMS WORLDWIDE.”

 As part of an effort to turn around the trajectory on the devastation of our biodiversity, the UN General Assembly, in a resolution adopted on 1 March 2019, declared 2021 -2031 as a “decade on ecosystems restoration.” Clear evidence from the Amazonia in Latin America to the Congo Basin in Central Africa and other regions of the world indicates that our precious ecosystems are being depleted at an alarming rate. This trend spells doom for humanity because ecosystems support all life on Earth. And the healthier our ecosystems are, the healthier the planet – and its people. As Sister Dorothy Stang had often warned, “the death of the forest is the end of our life.”

We can become part of the solution by doing something (no matter how little) to remedy the situation. So, take action by clicking on this link https://bit.ly/3xK6tUc to pledge to “Restore the Planet.”
