There is a growing awareness of the importance of forest in terms of climate change, biodiversity and combating desertification, and a strong potential for coherence among countries on that. In this sense, we would like to hold an international symposium that reaffirms the significance of Forest & Landscape Restoration in the Republic of Korea for the international recognition and Inter-Korean forest cooperation. The symposium will provide a forum for showcasing successful evidence of Korea’s restoration initiatives taking place at the country level, as well as for discussions on the role of regional and international platforms in drawing attention to such projects.
The symposium mainly aims to:
- Reaffirm and share Korea’s experience on forest & landscape restoration in various aspects such as policy, science technology, and international cooperation
- Proliferate our successful experiences in overcoming national-scaled forest degradation and forest landscape restoration being progressed by various institutions, searching for ways to applying them to developing countries as well as North Korea.
