By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Belize is hosting the joint Annual Meeting of the Initiative 20×20, Bonn Challenge, and the Agriculture, Forest, and Other Land Use (AFOLU) 2040 in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
In response to the Bonn Challenge, Initiative 20×20, and UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, Belize crafted its National Landscape Restoration Strategy in which over 382,592 hectares (945,405 acres) have been identified for restoration opportunities.
Of this, a total of 130,000 hectares (321,236 acres) have been prioritized for restoration actions by 2030.
The goal is to implement reforestation practices for 44,000 hectares (108,726 acres) in forest areas inside and outside protected areas, and 6,000 hectares (14,826 acres) of degraded and deforested riparian forests.
In addition, restoration efforts will improve the management of 80,000 hectares (197,684 acres) of the agro-productive landscape through improved agricultural and agroforestry practices.
