Action Initiatives

United for Regeneration Action Initiatives Overview

  1. Contributions of the Atlantic Forest to Brazil’s NDCs

    The land-use sector (agriculture + land-use change) in the Atlantic Forest may be able to reach neutral emissions by 2042 and zero deforestation by 2030, restoring 15 million hectares (ha) of forests and reaching the projected agricultural and livestock production goals via low-carbon practices. The scenario combines high food production with the end of deforestation, robust forest restoration with the potential generation of jobs and income.

  2. 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.

  3. CNN spot for B.Grimm – EndPandemics

    Watch the B.Grimm/EndPandemics Campaign spot that was featured on CNN: Preventing future pandemics by ending the commercial trade in wild animals, expanding wild habitat, and protecting livelihoods.

  4. SINAL DO VALE’S Reforestation Program

    The government of the state of Rio de Janeiro has launched the Florestas do Amanhã (FDA) program to reforest 1,100 hectares of the endangered Atlantic Rainforest with endemic species of the biome. Within this framework, Sinal do Vale has committed 30 hectares of degraded land within its property to the reforestation program over the next 4 years.

  5. Introducing Sinal for Children

    Important to the strategy of Sinal do Vale are environmental learning journeys for the youth. In this video, produced by SINAL, the key concepts and values of SINAL are presented to inspire children and the young generation.

  6. EndPandemics Roadmap

    End Pandemics published a step by step Roadmap to End Pandemics by addressing the root causes of Covid-19 and the five prior pandemics, including HIV and Ebola. The Roadmap is available in English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Thai.


What's new with NOW

The time is now. The transition to a regenerative economy is not only possible, it is already happening. Regenerative business models are not only possible, it is more profitable while also benefiting people and planet.

  1. Act Now to Prevent New Pandemics: Appeal to G20 Leaders

    United for Regeneration’s Action Initiative to End Pandemics publishes an open appeal to G20 leaders to take concrete action to prevent future pandemics. The paper presents three steps to global recovery and regeneration, including specific recommendations to reduce risk of new pandemics by addressing their root causes.

  2. The Case for a Planetary Security Program

    United for Regeneration’s End Pandemics Action Initiative publishes a case for a planetary security program, “Stop the New Global Terror: Pandemics”. The paper is co-authored by EndPandemics campaign leaders Steven R. Galster, Dr. Niall McCann, Dr. Andrey V. Kushlin & Walter Link.

  3. WATCH! EndPandemics: Appeal to World Leaders

    Watch the livestreamed event! More than 4 million in just 20 months. The global economy has been seriously set back, with experts projecting $11+ trillion in costs. And there are concerns that new viruses or variants may circumvent current vaccination programs. How do we move beyond our current reactive mode, to preventing new pandemics from occurring in the first place?
