UNEP: big potential benefits for restoring South Africa’s spekboom thicket

The UN Environment Programme published an article and video on the work of our South African partner Living Lands.

 

We would like to support the Government of South Africa and other partners, like Living Lands and Commonland, to realize the potential of the Eastern Cape thicket restoration, as we move into the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021–2030.

– Tim Christophersen, head of UN Environment’s Freshwater, Land and Climate Branch, and Chair of the Global Partnership on Forest and Landscape Restoration.
