Forest landscape restoration initiatives emphasize different and often partly competing goals, like mitigating climate change, restoring biodiversity, and improving local livelihoods. The session highlights some of the important trade-offs among these goals. It focuses on the need to balance short-term economic benefits and long-term ecological and climate benefits from restoration and how to connect the interests and goals of different stakeholders across scales, from local to global and vice versa, in a fair and equitable fashion.
