The 2019 Year in Review for The Restoration Initiative (TRI) details progress and stories from the first year of its implementation. With support from the GEF, this pathbreaking program led by the International Union for Conservation and Nature (IUCN) in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) is supporting ten Asian and African countries in achieving shared restoration goals.

The 2019 TRI Year in Review takes readers on a tour of the eleven projects of TRI, showcasing the diversity of project objectives and geographies that is a key feature of the program. From work to restore coastal mangroves and degraded rice fields in Guinea-Bissau, to improving the management practices of China’s large and vital network of state forest farms, to enhancing the productivity and resilience of degraded agricultural and pasture lands in South Kivu province in the Democratic Republic of Congo, to empowering local communities to conserve and sustainably manage the Tana River Delta in Kenya, readers can see the extent to which restoration is truly a global ambition and enterprise.
