At ILC, we jointly commit to

What we do
ILC PARTNERS WITH THE UN DECADE ON ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION
The International Land Coalition is proud to announce its partnership with the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
The Decade launched June 5th on World Environment Day and will run until 2030, just in time for the deadline of the Sustainable Development Goals. It aims to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems on every continent and in every ocean.
As a supporting partner, we’re committed to ensuring that the voices of local communities and indigenous peoples are given a platform to share with the world their community-led restoration initiatives - agro-ecological practices, community-led forest and rangelands management.
More often than not, these sustainable practices are not recognised and hardly taken into account in policy and regulation.
“ILC members are in the frontline of protecting the ecosystems upon which they depend. Recognising their tenure rights significantly reduces levels of deforestation. It’s a win for the planet, but it’s also simply the right thing to do - it’s their land.” - Annalisa Mauro, Network and Operations Coordinator, ILC.
Watch the launch event
ILC hosted a launch event on June 2nd to look at how securing land rights of local communities and indigenous peoples will help achieve the Decade’s goal of healing the planet in 10 years. Community and indigenous peoples’ representatives shared their stories, and current data on the risks community and indigenous land and environmental defenders are faced with.
