Restoring grasslands, shrublands, savannahs & rangelands - through sustainable extensive livestock-based food systems

ILRI, WWF,ILRI, WWF, UNCCD, UNEP, UNDP, FAO, GRSB,

The commitment is to form a coalition that will lead action to restore grasslands, shrublands, savannahs & rangelands through sustainable extensive livestock-based food systems, to help optimize environmental resource use in production, reduce biodiversity loss, pollution, water use, soil degradation and greenhouse gas emissions.

The coalition will identify research needs, gather and share improved data on grasslands, shrublands and savannahs to enable more informed decision making, including investments and particularly restoration investment opportunities to increase adoption and upscaling of good practices. This will foster greater attention in global strategies and frameworks, such as CBD targets.
