Immense benefits for climate change objectives can be derived from forest and landscape restoration. However, for putting landscape-based restoration into practice, a better understanding of the challenges, opportunities and impacts on human livelihoods involved is needed.
This panel discussion aims at enhancing the understanding – among professionals and decision-makers - of the complex mix of aspects and factors to be taken into account for a successful implementation of forest and landscape restoration and management.
Panelists will share best practices on landscape governance and restoration activities on the ground, as well as land-use trade-offs, benefit-sharing mechanisms (e.g. payments for environmental services or REDD+), equity, mitigation and adaptation. The session also intends to foster partnerships for knowledge management and capacity building to support improved multiple benefits from forest landscape restoration in the tropics.
