Forest landscape restoration (FLR) has been hailed as one of the most critical and effective solutions to mitigate climate change. The need for such solutions is pressing: nearly a billion hectares of land, across the humid and semi-humid tropics alone, is degraded and requires urgent restoration. That’s why ITTO and its partners have issues guidelines, which lay out key principles and guiding elements for successful FLR.
