Stock-taking of Standards of Practice (SoPs) for the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration
The Society for Ecological Restoration, IUCN's Commission on Ecosystem Management, and the FAO-led Best Practices Task Force of the United Nation's Decade on Ecosystem Restoration recently partnered to develop "Principles for Ecosystem Restoration to Guide the United Nations Decade 2021-2030". With the release of the Principles, the partnership is now working to develop Standards of Practice (SoPs) to support their implementation. The first step in the process of developing SoPs is stocktaking of existing SoPs for all types of activities defined as ecosystem restoration under the Decade, including rehabilitation, reclamation, forest landscape restoration, ecological restoration, sustainable or ecological agriculture and forestry, rewilding, other effective conservation measures (OECMs on terrestrial or in aquatic ecosystems), and others.

We need your help to identify existing standards of practice (SoPs) from all types of restorative activities and from all biomes, regions, and sectors. Please complete the short survey below to share your knowledge about existing standards of practice.

The survey will be open until Saturday, January 8th. If you have any questions, please contact:
