Restoration of landscapes with forests and trees: Highlights from China’s forest restoration programs and the USDA Environmental Quality Improvement Program


As countries around the world rise to the Bonn Challenge of restoring 150 million ha by 2020, we turn to two of the global giants in landscape restoration for insights on program design and outcomes. What are the institutional capacities and financial resources required to implement and monitor landscape restoration on the scale of China and the US? What can we learn from experiences in (sub)-tropical agricultural lands in Hawaii and SW China?
