Given the considerable current political momentum and commitment towards Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) by global and national policy makers, there is the need to discuss and further develop approaches and mechanisms of FLR implementation on the ground. To this end, the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) has entrusted IUFRO with the organization of an international knowledge-sharing workshop on "Forest Landscape Restoration and Global Change: From Policy to Practice". The event was organized in close cooperation with FAO, MINIRENA, Wageningen University, IUCN, WRI and CIFOR and brought together experts from Africa and overseas to exchange latest knowledge and experiences with initiating and facilitating FLR projects in the region.
