Learning Sites

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. They show diversity of conditions and capture the richness of how different stakeholders are addressing land management issues.

For a complete overview of the learning sites,

As agreed by the partners, participants in the learning network should be committed to:

  1. Balancing trade offs between and improving ecological integrity and peoples’ livelihoods

  2. FLR principles: 
    1. Restoration of a balanced package of forest functions
    2. Active engagement, collaboration and negotiation among a mix of  stakeholders
    3. Working across a landscape
    4. Learning and adapting

  3. Sharing information, monitoring and learning through the learning network.

The intent is to bring together sites that partners and other collaborators have “volunteered” then provide a framework for engaging them in a suite of learning activities as appropriate to their situation and interests.  There should be a diversity and mix of site types in the network, in terms of:  sample size, ownership mix, geographic balance, and range of sites at different stages of progression in FLR (planning, implementation, and sites that display some characteristics of a restored ecosystem.)  On the other hand, some comparability is necessary to enable participants to learn from each other and this comparability will in the first instance flow from the commitments listed above.
