Accelerating Biodiversity Commitments through Forest Landscape Restoration: Evidence from assessments in 26 countries using the Restoration Opportunities Assessment Methodology (ROAM)

Accelerating Biodiversity Commitments through Forest Landscape Restoration: Evidence from assessments in 26 countries using the Restoration Opportunities Assessment Methodology (ROAM)

This document provides guidance, information and evidence about how forest landscape restoration (FLR) can accelerate progress towards achieving the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, tackling the current challenges of maintaining a balance of land productivity and ecosystem integrity. The main objective is to increase awareness and demonstrate how the planning and implementation of FLR ambitions, especially under the Bonn Challenge and through the application of the Restoration Opportunities Assessment Methodology (ROAM) can translate into concrete and reportable contributions to the goals and strategic actions set out in countries’ NBSAPs.
