The Value of Restoration

This report, written by Terraformation and Frontier Economics examines the economic value of native ecosystem restoration.

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.
