Upscaling Forest and Landscape Restoration: Mechanisms for Success

In response to the increasing and devastating degradation of ecosystems, African leaders committed to restore 100 million hectares by 2030 under the African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative (AFR100). African communities, enterprises and politicians are already invested in the movement to restore forest landscapes and ecosystems. Yet, as national ambitions continue to grow, so does the demand for local stakeholders to match these commitments in the field. Bridging existing challenges and embracing opportunities and success factors will be necessary to upscale Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR) today in order to fulfill tomorrow what was promised yesterday. This session discusses challenges, opportunities and achievements of upscaling restoration in Africa.
