The Atlantic Forest, Brazil: History, Deforestation & Restoration
The Atlantic Forest, a top hotspot for biodiversity conservation, remains severely threatened. However, its restoration may make a substantial contribution to carbon sequestration and reaching the 1,50C goal. Recovering its ecosystem services is critical for the Brazilian economy and people and the planet. There is a governance framework to achieve it. Reversing its tipping point may become a benchmark for the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
