The next decade is our window to climate-proof critical areas of the Wet Tropics. Acknowledging the challenge of retaining and restoring the environment, the United Nations has declared 2021–2030 the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, with a focus on preventing, halting and reversing the degradation of ecosystems worldwide.
The Wet Tropics Restoration Alliance (the Alliance) is a coalition of organisations working together to help secure the future of the world’s oldest continuously surviving tropical rainforest, and to build the ecological, social, cultural and financial resilience of the Wet Tropics region.
The Alliance brings together a network of community, landholders, Rainforest Aboriginal Peoples, industry, individuals, government, non-government organisations, academic institutions and investors who have common goals and aspirations for landscape restoration of the Wet Tropics.
We work as partners to reverse the decline of our unique biodiversity and use nature-based and traditional ecological solutions, including revegetation and conservation outside reserves, to address our climate emergency.
On 16 September 2022, Wet Tropics Restoration Alliance partners signed up to a Statement of Commitment.
The partners will work together to develop and implement a new Wet Tropics Restoration Investment Strategy in 2023, which will attract and target initial landscape investment.
The Wet Tropics Restoration Alliance is open to any organisation that has an interest in protection of existing forest and restoration across the Wet Tropics bioregion.
