Description

Description Initiative 20x20 is a country-led effort to bring 20 million hectares of land in Latin America and the Caribbean into restoration by 2020. The initiative—launched formally at COP 20 in Lima—will support the Bonn Challenge, a global commitment to restore 150 million hectares of land around the world by 2020 and the New York Declaration on Forests that seeks to restore 350 million hectares by 2030.

The initiative will support reforestation (natural and assisted), conservation of forests as well as avoided deforestation as elements of an integral restoration process. Cognizant of the various degrees of land degradation in the region, the initiative will also support efforts to recover land functionality (soil conservation and recovery; carbon storage; water retention and stable hydrologies; biodiversity conservation and recovery) through agroforestry, sylvo pastures, and other sustainable land use schemes.

Objectives 20 million hectares of land restores in Latin America and the Caribbean by 2020
Activities Inspire national commitments to restoration by engaging in a robust dialogue with Ministers of Agriculture and Environment in the region;

Make the economic case by assessing the societal benefits from restoration and avoided deforestation; and Establish a financial mechanism that allows private sector impact investors to fund restoration projects.

Three states and four NGO's participating in Initiative 20x20, committing a total of about 27.7 million hectares to place into restoration by 2020. Mexico: 8.5 million hectares between the Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Environment Peru: 3.2 million hectares through the Ministry of Agriculture State of Mato Grosso (Brazil): 2.9 million hectares Nicaragua: 2.8 million hectares Bosques Modelo: 1.6 million hectares Guatemala: 1.2 million hectare contribution from the 2014 UN Climate Summit Honduras: 1 million hectares from the Ministry of Environment Colombia: 1 million hectares through the Ministry of Agriculture El Salvador: 1 million hectare through the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources Costa Rica: 1 million hectares through the Ministry of Environment Argentina: 1 million hectares Conservacion Patagonica: 1 million hectares Ecuador: 0.5 million hectares through the Ministry of Environment Chile: 0.5 million hectares State of São Paulo (Brazil): 300,000 (.3m) hectares American Bird Conservancy: 100,000 (0.1m) hectares State of Espírito Santo (Brazil): 80,000 (0.08m) hectares
