THE LARGEST RESTORATION OF LAND TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE
The United Nations has called to restore 350 million hectares of forestlands and landscapes by 2030, This would eliminate 5% of the world’s CO2 emissions from the atmosphere each year. By adding the protection of existing forests, up to 25% of the world’s CO2 emissions would be eliminated from the atmosphere each year. This is the largest restoration of nature ever undertaken. A concrete action to fight climate change. The United Nations considers restoration of forestlands and landscapes as one of the largest, most cost-effective climate solutions available today.
WE BRING NEW LFE TO FORESTLANDS AND LANDSCAPES
Thanks to a campaign organized with the United Nations, we have already planted 47 million trees and restored 60,000 hectares. We restore deforested, desertified and burned land. We plant trees, protect young shoots born from natural regeneration and take measures against fire. Vegetation prevents desertification, protects biodiversity, lowers the local temperature and absorbs CO2 emissions from the atmosphere.
RESTORING FORESTS AND LANDSCAPES IN THE MEDITERRANEAN
The Mediterranean is the most visited region of the world, but it’s also one of the regions of the world that suffers the most from climate change.Temperatures worldwide have increased by 0.85°C, in the Mediterranean they have increased by 1.3°C. Sea level along the Mediterranean has risen 6 cm. It will rise 50 cm by 2100. 95% of fires in Europe take place in the Mediterranean. Desertification is turning whole regions into desert.The olive trees that give their precious oil to the world will be gone in 100 years. Restoring forests and landscapes in the Mediterranean is urgent. See the Mediterranean Green Belt
