They named their goal the Bonn Challenge. The Aichi Biodiversity Target 15 within the Convention on Biological Diversity has a similar goal, namely the restoration of at least 15% of degraded ecosystems globally. Two challenges facing these goals are how to fund this large-scale restoration and how to ensure that it is implemented effectively. The C4 team specialises in overcoming these challenges and developing funding mechanisms as well as restoration protocols for specific ecosystems.
“ C4 EcoSolutions has developed a project for the Asia-Pacific region which will build the climate resilience of poor urban communities through ecosystem-based adaptation within pilot cities in Bhutan, Cambodia, Lao PDR and Myanmar. City-specific activities will include urban reforestation, urban agriculture and restoration of wetlands in urban areas. In addition to restoring ecosystems, these activities will enhance local communities’ livelihoods. ”
