The Economic Case for Landscape Restoration in Latin America

28 October 2016


Woodrow Wilson Center, 6th Floor,
1300 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
20004 Washington DC

Join us for an engaging discussion around the economic benefits of restoring productivity to deforested and degraded lands in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Latin America and the Caribbean account for over 20 percent of the world’s degraded lands, with 300 million hectares of degraded forests and 350 million hectares now classified as deforested—an area almost double the size of Mexico. WRI research shows an effort to restore Latin America and the Caribbean’s degraded forests, savannas, and agricultural landscapes would result in substantial net economic benefits.
