Know-How Needed for Successful Forest Landscape Restoration in Africa

25 Jun 2021


This session shares fundamental practices and skills needed by different actors to support progress in forest and landscape restoration (FLR) on the ground. These include: (i) sensitizing policymakers to the right mix of regulations and policies that need to be in place for local actors to successfully restore land and move towards sustainable land management practices; (ii) preparing FLR facilitators to assist stakeholders in organizing the platforms for interaction, reconciling conflicting views, and planning FLR activities, as well as gathering information, linking actors and monitoring progress; and (iii) co-developing FLR and improvement measures with local actors.
