- The Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR) movement is preparing for large-scale implementation globally.
- It is crucial to pay attention to the quality of restoration interventions and outcomes.
- Current tools for planning, assessment or best practice guidelines may not be sufficient to secure effective results.
- The FLoRES Taskforce1 calls for the development of a Standard for FLR to capture the dynamic, multifunctional and incremental nature of the FLR process.
- To guarantee its adoption, the FLR standard needs to be developed through a broad-based, participatory process to ensure it is fit for purpose and context adapted.
- A Standard for FLR can bring multiple benefits for all stakeholders.
- The purpose of this Brief is to raise awareness and call for action.
