Preferred by Nature is welcoming interested stakeholders to participate in the public consultation on the Standard for Field Verification of Ecosystem Restoration Version 2.0. The consultation aims to seek input and feedback on the proposed verification approach.
As a way of demonstrating support for the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, Preferred by Nature has developed the Standard for Field Verification of Ecosystem Restoration. This Standard focuses on assessing the performance of ecosystem restoration at the field level, in tropical, temperate and boreal biomes. By blending technical, environmental, social and economic attributes, the Standard provides a structured approach and detailed checklist for verifying ecosystem restoration practices.
This Standard is suitable to be applied across all scales and credible models of ecosystem restoration, including smallholder and community, medium- and large-scale operations.
The first version was released for public consultation in September 2020. The Standard has been used to support restoration projects of various sizes from America, Europe to Africa. Read more on the two cases in Spain and Chile.
You can download a summary of stakeholder feedback from the first consultation round and overview of changes made in this version here.
And, the complete list with all comments can be accessed here.
