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.
