Restoring mountain ecosystems is the theme of this year's International Mountain Day on December 11th, 2023.
This theme was selected by the United Nations to fully include mountains in the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021–2030, co-led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN and the UN Environment Programme. The Decade aims to bring together political support, scientific research and financial resources to scale-up restoration of ecosystems, including mountain regions.
