The boot camp takes place in Paris on 3–4 December. 

More and more restoration initiatives are unfolding across the developing world—and the questions remain the same: What works best? What role for rural people? Who has what rights over which land? And who benefits?

The SDGs include ending hunger, promoting good nutrition and health, and making agriculture sustainable. As never before, experts in forests, farming, and food are working together to get a better handle on the problems and craft solutions.

  • Expert blog: Why forests and food security go hand in hand and why there is hope.
  • Farming: AIRCA’s toolkit is helping smallholders secure food sustainably.

By 2050, the world could lose 20% of its natural areas. The health, economic, and community costs would be enormous.
The SDGs set the course, but we must take strides to reconcile development with nature, says The Nature Conservancy´s Justin Adams.
Frank Hajek, Nature Services Peru, says making farms and cities sustainable is not enough. “We need to develop robust models to sustain wilderness globally. It is not optional. It is a reality that is slowly sinking in!”
