Latin America

Between 2001 and 2012, Latin America and the Caribbean lost 36 million hectares of forest and grassland to agricultural expansion, and nearly half of the region's greenhouse gas emissions are the result of land-use change, forestry, and agriculture.

Bringing 20 million hectares of degraded land in Latin America and the Caribbean into restoration by 2020.
