Landscape Restoration Movement Approaches 50 Million Hectares With El Salvador And Costa Rica Commitments

" As Ambassador for the Plant a Pledge Campaign  and Founder and Chair of the Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation  I am delighted with the pledges announced by El Salvador and Costa Rica today, which take us to 20 million hectares, and bring 50 million within reach. We look forward to other commitments in the pipeline from India   and the Meso-American  Alliance  of Peoples and Forests being formalised with the GPFLR soon,"    says Bianca Jagger, Ambassador of the Plant a Pledge Campaign, and Chair of the Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation.  

"Environmental destruction is a serious human rights issue and the Bonn Challenge has never been more relevant. Restoration of degraded and deforested lands is not simply about planting trees. People and communities are at the heart of the restoration effort, which transforms barren or degraded areas of land into healthy, fertile working landscapes."

"The public should continue to appeal to governments, businesses, landowners and communities to contribute to the  Bonn  Challenge target. We have a unique opportunity to renew our degraded and deforested landscapes now. Our fate and the fate of future generations depend on it.  I urge everyone to support our campaign and sign our petition at ,"  says Jagger.
