Published by the National Forest Programme Facility at FAO, the manual provides guidelines for designing and conducting training courses for practitioners involved in managing conflict related to forest policy.
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.
One of the difficulties to use water wisely is the division of responsibilities between different authorities. This often results in fragmented and competitive approaches in the use of rivers, lakes, wetlands and other water resources. Yet for current and future water security it is vital to maintain and restore wetlands as a critical water infrastructure.
Forests play crucial ecological, social and economic roles in drylands, but in many regions they have become degraded. Worldwide, millions of hectares of dryland forest landscapes need to be restored to help tackle global challenges such as poverty, climate change, soil erosion and desertification. In collaboration with its partners, therefore, FAO is preparing guidelines for restoring the resilience of forest landscapes in drylands, to be published in the second half of 2013. This brochure describes the main elements of the guidelines.
