Tools & Methods
What is a landscape approach?
Landscapes can have multiple functions, as they provide a variety of services to society, such as biodiversity, food, water, shelter, livelihood, economic growth, and human well-being. All these services are interlinked; so if the agricultural area in a landscape expands, it will have repercussions for the area covered by forests.
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.
