Landscape restoration
Nairobi 3 - 4

Stakeholders and policy makers discuss how to successfully upscale Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) models to reach the targets of international FLR initiatives. The African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative (AFR100) alone aims to bring 100 million hectares under restoration across Africa by 2030 as a contribution to the Bonn Challenge and the New York Declaration on Forests. These policy targets are very ambitious and their implementation faces various hurdles. Lessons learned from German financial cooperation projects are presented to discuss prerequisites and factors for successful financing for implementing and upscaling FLR.

Organizations are welcome and encourage to host and facilitate side meeting before and during the GLF event, and then bring their results and recommendations to the Forum. A GLF secretariat will be on hand to identify and reserve appropriate Bonn venues. Webinars, engaging social media campaigns, competitions and pre-event discussions will generate momentum and interest in key issue areas to ensure that the GLF accelerates long-term action for sustainable landscapes.
