Building Capacities for the Restoration of Tropical Forest Landscapes and the Enhancement of their Ecosystem Goods and Services

Forest landscape restoration (FLR) can deliver long-term, large-scale benefits only when national and sub-national FLR practitioners are equipped with the capacities to plan and facilitate economically viable FLR projects in specific local contexts. This session will focus on indispensable capacities for implementing FLR in complex socio-ecological and socio-political environments and place special emphasis on the productive capacities of tropical landscapes. Expert panellists will share their views on incentives and investments, communicating governance, participatory planning, and integrating stakeholder and technical knowledge in project design. Outcomes from the panel and audience discussion will contribute to further FLR capacity building and training programs.


Hosted by International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), International Tropical Timber Organization.
