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.
