This report, written by Terraformation and Frontier Economics examines the economic value of native ecosystem restoration. Restoring forest ecosystems to a healthy state generates numerous benefits including carbon sequestration, reduction in soil erosion, reduced flooding, biodiversity and habitat protection, support forest-driven livelihoods, and more. This report estimates that the net present value of potential new revenue streams from restoring all degraded tropical and temperate forest ecosystems globally could be an estimated $1 trillion US.
The Restor Tool, launched in 2021 by the Crowther Lab with the goal of increasing transparency and knowledge sharing across global restoration projects.
This report, written by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with McKinsey & Company, addresses the role of natural climate solutions in corporate net zero commitments, as well as the role of natural climate solutions in COVID-19 economic recovery plans. The report finds that the demand for natural climate solutions as a component of corporate net zero commitments is increasing, and that avoided deforestation, reforestation, and peatland restorations can deliver significant emissions abatement over the next decade.
