- Global Contribution: contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Goals of the Rio Convention.
- Broad Engagement: promoting inclusive and participatory governance, social fairness and equity from the start and throughout the processes and outcomes.
- Diverse Activities: including many types of activities – a continuum of restoration activities.
- Benefits to Nature and People: achieving the highest level of recovery for biodiversity, ecosystem health and integrity and human well-being.
