Forest and landscape restoration

CIFOR’s work on forest and landscape restoration aims to provide partners and governments across the globe with the information they need to solve problems in this area.


Restoring forest landscapes can help mitigate climate change, support sustainable livelihoods and maintain biodiversity. But to effect real change on the ground, countries need answers to problems around finance, implementation and conflict resolution.

CIFOR is working to help countries meet their restoration targets, as momentum builds for the Bonn Challenge, the World Resources Institute Initiative 20×20 and other global plans to restore millions of hectares of forest by 2020.
