The Bonn Challenge, launched by the German government in 2011 in partnership with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), is an ambitious global effort that aims to bring 150 million hectares of degraded and deforested land into restoration by 2020, and 350 million hectares by 2030.
The Bonn Challenge is not a new global commitment but rather a practical means of realizing many existing international commitments, including the CBD Aichi Target 15, the UNFCCC REDD+ goal, and the Rio+20 land degradation neutrality goal.
