The specific context for this paper is provided by two current initiatives: the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (UN Decade), which was launched in 2021, and the Global EbA Fund, which is expected to operate until 2027. This briefing paper is intended to contribute to both initiatives by highlighting the role of restoration in climate change adaptation and identifying key lessons that need to be taken into account in promoting that role.
