The Bonn Challenge was launched in September 2011 at a ministerial event organized by the German government and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), with the support of the Global Partnership on Forest Landscape Restoration (GPFLR). This global effort aims to restore 150 million hectares of degraded and deforested land by 2020. To date there are 58 national and sub-national landscape restoration COMMITMENTS, equivalent to 170.43 MILLION HECTARES. In 2014, the promoters of this initiative called for raising the restoration commitment to 350 million hectares by 2030.
Latin America began organizing regional meetings on the Bonn Challenge in El Salvador in 2015. Subsequently, similar meetings were held in the Mediterranean, Africa and Asia.
