Healthy and resilient land is increasingly recognized as the foundation of sustainable growth and prosperity in all regions. It could provide the basis of plans to build back better after the COVID19 pandemic and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Investing for healthy and productive land not only supports sustainable development and protects our shared natural resources but can generate commercially attractive returns.
