FREE WEBINAR: New diagnostic for forest landscape restoration strategies 2/18/2016

This free World Resources Institute webinar on February 18, 2016 from 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST will launch The Restoration Diagnostic: A Method for Developing Forest Landscape Restoration Strategies by Rapidly Assessing the Status of Key Success Factors as well as the accompanying tool.

Forest landscape restoration can yield a number of economic, social, and environmental benefits.

Most countries around the world have an untapped resource opportunity lying within their borders: the restoration of forest landscapes.

“Forest landscape restoration” is the process of regaining ecological functionality and enhancing human well-being across cleared or degraded forest landscapes. It can result in a variety of land uses, ranging from vast tracts of dense natural forests, to high-yield agroforestry systems, to a mosaic of wooded areas amid productive agricultural fields.

Forest landscape restoration does not call for increasing tree cover beyond what would be ecologically appropriate for a particular location.

The Restoration Diagnostic is a structured method for identifying which key success factors for forest landscape restoration are already in place, which are partially in place, and which are missing within a country or landscape that has restoration opportunities.

When applied prior to a restoration effort, the Diagnostic can help decision-makers and restoration supporters focus their efforts on the most important factors to get in place—before large amounts of human, financial, or political capital are invested.
