The Economics of Ecosystem Restoration (TEER) initiative

The lack of baseline data, and consistent information on the costs and benefits of ecosystem restoration, hinders further investments into restoration activities, weakening capacity to achieve the global restoration goals. To fill this gap, FAO has initiated the Economics of Ecosystem Restoration (TEER) initiative with the CGIAR Research program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA). The initiative is led by CIFOR, the World Resource Institute (WRI), and other member organizations of the Global Partnership on Forest and Landscape Restoration (GPFLR), including the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD)/ Forest Ecosystem Restoration Initiative (FERI), Bioversity International, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Tropenbos International, and WeForest.
