The ITTO Biennial Work Programme for 2010-2011 includes Activity 49, which calls for the ITTO and its members to: "Make provision for the ITTO, in collaboration with the Global Partnership for Forest and Landscape Restoration (GPFLR) and national institutions to establish and consolidate a learning network of forest landscape restoration model sites for demonstration, exchange of experience and dissemination of best practices."
Tools & Methods
The Restoration Opportunities Assessment Methodology (ROAM), produced by IUCN and the World Resources Institute, provides a flexible and affordable framework approach for countries to rapidly identify and analyse forest landscape restoration (FLR) potential and locate specific areas of opportunity at a national or sub-national level.
On this website we present some examples, listed on the right, where Forest and Landscape Restoration has been or is being implemented.
The sites, tools and policy initiatives of the members of the Partnership represent a variety of geographical areas, stakeholder groups, socio-economic conditions and restoration strategies.
Landscapes provide a multitude of benefits, or ecosystem services, and are managed for multitude of planning objectives. During this webinar Dr Louise Willemen (ITC-University of Twente, the Netherlands) will give an overview of the state-of-knowledge on landscape planning & decision making.
