The Living Shoreline – Building a resilient waterfront in Manhattan

Credit: New York Restoration Project. Restoring a park and wetlands in Northern Manhattan. (NYRP) believes that access to nature is a fundamental right. Since its founding in 1995 by Bette Midler, NYRP has planted trees, renovated gardens, restored parks, and transformed open space for communities throughout New York City’s five boroughs. As New York’s only citywide nature conservancy, it brings private resources to spaces that lack adequate municipal support, fortifying the City’s aging infrastructure and creating a healthier environment for those who live in the most densely populated and least green neighbourhoods.

The work comes on the eve of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030, a 10-year push to revive the natural world that launches on 5 June 2021, World Environment Day. Led by the United Nations Environment Programme and the Food and Agriculture Organization, the UN Decade is designed to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems worldwide. It will draw together political support, scientific research and financial muscle to scale up restoration and revive millions of hectares of land and marine ecosystems.
