Partner Event

Local finance for forest and landscape restoration

28 November 2018
10:00 - 11:30 CET

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is proud to partner with the WWF Landscape Finance Lab to present a webinar and learning forum concerning how finance can be directed for the benefit of local stakeholders engaged in Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR). We will discuss investment mechanisms and strategies, and share experiences in accessing local, blended funding sources to scale up FLR.

Please join our webinar, as well as the two-week discussion forum on the Landscape Finance Lab Platform to exchange information on available options, and to share lessons and case studies. We welcome your engagement with the community to learn more about local finance options for forest and landscape!


More than USD 300 billion per year is needed to restore the world’s degraded lands and achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 15.3 to combat desertification, restore degraded land and soil – including land affected by desertification, drought and floods – and strive to achieve a land-degradation neutral world by 2030.

In many countries, guidance is needed in terms of how best to incentivize and enable local and sub-national actors (such as farmers, small- and medium-sized enterprises, civil society including community organizations, and local governments) with financial and non-financial support to produce FLR outcomes.

This knowledge-sharing forum aims to develop participants’ knowledge concerning ways in which finance can be better directed to benefit local stakeholders engaged in Forest and Landscape Restoration.
