    Restoring degraded lands is a key strategy for mitigating climate change, improving ecosystem health, and sustaining goods and services for people and planet. As part of the Bonn Challenge, New York Declaration on Forests, and other international initiatives, countries are encouraged to collectively restore at least 350 million hectares of degraded lands. Also, 2021-2030 has just been declared the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. Monitoring restoration progress is important for ensuring that restoration activities stay on track to meet local and global goals. Monitoring also provides evidence for communicating successes, which will attract further investments for restoration projects, thereby scaling up efforts. In this context, WRI and FAO have jointly developed a series of tools to help with monitoring restoration. First is a guidebook for practitioners on discussing objectives and impacts and deciding which indicators to consider for monitoring their restoration projects, entitled The Road to Restoration: A Guide to Identifying Priorities and Indicators for Monitoring Forest and Landscape Restoration. Alongside this publication, the organizations prepared an e-learning course within the FAO e-learning academy and a web application called AURORA (Assessment, Understanding and Reporting of Restoration Actions), which facilitate the decision-making process and support users is selecting desired impacts and their indicators, setting up their goals, and monitoring progress. To complement this process, the publication Mapping Together: A Guide to Monitoring Forest and Landscape Restoration using Collect Earth Mapathons was produced to help project managers organize data collection events that establish baselines and monitor progress focusing on biophysical indicators. Here, we briefly present the FAO/WRI set of tools that will facilitate monitoring at different stages and will contribute to more robust monitoring and reporting processes.
