How can the Nordic countries implement the CBD-target on restoration of 15% of degraded ecosystems within 2020?

The Convention of Biological Diversity commits the parties to halt the loss of biodiversity within 2020. For accomplishing this task, the Aichi targets have been established. Aichi target 15 aims at restoring 15% of damaged ecosystems by 2020. The Nordic countries are parties to CBD, and committed to the Aichi targets. This project will establish a basis that may be used by the management and political authorities in the Nordic countries for achieving Aichi target 15 on restoration of degraded ecosystems. The report explores the possibilities, limitations and challenges on how ecological restoration can contribute to the Aichi target, based on available knowledge and existing statistics on degraded land and restoration experiences in the Nordic countries and Estonia. This is intended as a contribution for future work at the national level and in local communities.

Status of ecological restoration in the Nordic countries

During 2009–2011 Nordic Council of Ministers and TEG supported the project “Restoration in the Nordic countries” (ReNo). This was the first attempt to gather overview and create a network amongst ecological restorationist on a Nordic regional scale. A total of 13 Nordic institutions were involved in the ReNo network, including the scientific community, public and private organizations and NGO’s working on ecological restoration (Halldórsson et al. 2012).
