About the Ecological Restoration & Rewilding category

Ecological restoration is any intentional activity that initiates, assists or accelerates the recovery of a degraded or damaged ecosystem. In 2022, it was estimated that about 96.4 M hectares of land has degraded in India and its only increasing.

To reverse the effects of degradation, we need to outpace it, which can only happen if there is significant collective action. The methods and means we use restore and rewild, need to be ecologically sound to avoid further loss to biodiversity and accessible to allow for localised implementation, as that would be the only way to scale.

Let’s use this platform to discuss the different methods that could be used for restoration, the specific approaches that have worked, technologies that could assist, new models of financing, policy discussions and anything else related to ecological restoration and rewilding
