The Restoration Initiative: 2021 Year in Review

Year published: 30/09/2022

2021 marks the completion of The Restoration Initiative’s (TRI) third full year of implementation. Despite challenges lingering from the COVID-19 global pandemic, 2021 was a year of encouraging progress. As stay-at-home work requirements and other restrictions were lifted, project participants were able to return to the field, using the analyses, policy recommendations and landscape restoration and management plans developed in 2020 to accelerate restoration actions.

In addition, TRI’s global support partners launched an initiative that will help close the investment gap for young enterprises that incorporate nature-based solutions (NbS), and will continue to advance forest landscape restoration (FLR) knowledge- sharing and capacity-building initiatives for TRI partners and the wider restoration community. In many ways, 2021 was a year of transitions, but it also presented a fresh start for continuing on-the-ground work with renewed vigour as the world collectively transitioned to the new normal.
