"The most important thing, I think, is to have led people to have confidence in themselves, to understand that at last they can sit down and write about their development, write about their happiness and say what they want. And at the same time, to feel what the price is for happiness".

During the Saudi presidency of the Group of Twenty (G20), G20 leaders launched the Global Initiative to Reduce Land Degradation and Enhance Terrestrial Habitat Conservation (hereafter referred to as the G20 Global Land Initiative). The global ambition of the G20 Global Land Initiative is to reduce land degradation by 50 % by 2040. To ensure the effective implementation of this goal, a coordinating office for the initiative has been established within the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. In addition, the G20 Global Land Initiative is also leading the land challenge of the United Nations Decade for Ecosystem Restoration.

The G20 Global Land Initiative is undertaking a series of activities around the world to promote large-scale land restoration. These include sharing and showcasing best practice, working with the private sector to see restoration as a business opportunity, working with civil society to promote advocacy for land restoration and working with global universities to build capacity for large-scale restoration. As part of its activities, the G20 Global Land Initiative aims to support up to 60 on-the-ground restoration projects undertaken by civil society organisations to promote community action for land restoration.
