Global Land Outlook 2

This Summary for Decision Makers is a synthesis of the key messages contained in the second edition of the UNCCD’s flagship publication, the Global Land Outlook, Land Restoration for Recovery and Resilience. This edition sets out the rationale, enabling conditions, and diverse pathways by which countries and communities can design their tailored land restoration agenda. The summary and full report are based on the best available evidence, following an extensive analysis of the literature as well as documented case studies and good practices.1

“Investing in large-scale land restoration to combat desertification, soil erosion, and loss of agricultural production is a win-win solution. It is a win for the environment. It is a win for the climate. It is a win for the economy, and for the livelihoods of local communities. Land restoration is a powerful and cost-effective sustainable development tool.” Ibrahim Thiaw, UNCCD Executive Secretary
