Forest Landscape Restoration for Climate, Nature and People

07 Dec 2021

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.
