A Method for Developing Forest Landscape Restoration Strategies by Rapidly Assessing the status of Key Success Factors
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.
Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) activities are often misunderstood as involving high up-front costs and low rates of return and these ideas persist because few evaluations of restoration activities include a comprehensive and objective accounting of restoration’s ecological and economic impacts.
