This session will share fundamental practices and skills needed by different actors to support progress in forest landscape restoration (FLR) on the ground. Those 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 for moving 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.
