    Unasylva: Forest and Landscape Restoration
    No. 245. Vol. 66 2015/3
    2015
    Also available in:

    Forest and landscape restoration is a key issue in the ongoing discussions at the Paris Climate Change Conference, convened to broker a game-changing agreement on climate change. On a planet where the mark of human activity is almost ubiquitous, restoration is by necessity a concept that has to take into account human well-being and ongoing change. In addition, in order to succeed in the long term, forest and landscape restoration initiatives will need to successfully engage a range of stakehold ers, from policy-makers to local communities and from governments to private actors. This issue of Unasylva maps out some of the progress that has already been made, and the challenges that lie ahead.

    Several regional or sub regional initiatives are currently on going on in Forest and Landscape Restoration in Latin America, Africa, Asia Pacific and the Mediterranean. These regional initiatives contribute to the achievement of the Bonn Challenge which aims to restore 150 million hectares by 2020. Those regional or sub regional initiatives/dynamics emerged recently with the support of several key partners involved in the Global Partnership on Forest and Landscape Restoration such as FAO, IUCN, WRI or the Global Mechanism of the UNCCD. They help to implement national FLR efforts at the most relevant scale to develop: (i) collaboration between countries with the same ecosystems and/or FLR issues, (ii) knowledge sharing on good practices, monitoring tools and guidelines and (iii) pooling of both human and financial resources by building relevant alliances between technical and/or financial partners. This side event will allow the members of those regional initiatives to understand the diversity of the existing ongoing dynamics in the different regions and will help all partners involved in those regional dynamics to build on existing successful results in Latin America, Africa, Asia-Pacific or the Mediterranean.
