Forest restoration becomes a cornerstone of science and policy in 21st century

Robin Chazdon, Executive Director of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation, explores the challenges and opportunities for the restoration of forest landscapes.

She peaks at the high-level plenary session from the second day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2015, in Paris, France alongside COP21.

The session builds a bridge between the research and policy communities, focusing on the role landscapes play in achieving SDGs and new climate goals.

The session explores how useful the landscape approach is for achieving the new climate and development goals, provides concrete suggestions for policy and practice, asks how climate action in landscapes work, how we analyze changes over time, and how policymakers and their institutions acquire “environmental intelligence”.
