FAO: New knowledge sharing platform on forest and landscape restoration launched

 

 

3 May 2017, Rome - FAO and partners have launched a new knowledge sharing platform on forest and landscape restoration. The open-access platform is the first virtual space to provide access to a comprehensive database of key forest and landscape restoration resources aggregated from around the globe.

 

“The platform is unique in that landscape practitioners can be guided through the entire planning, management, and implementation stages of a forest and landscape restoration project,” said Douglas McGuire, Coordinator of the Forest and Landscape Restoration Mechanism (FLRM) for FAO.

 

The open-access platform will help users improve their enabling environments, institutional arrangements, organizational and technical capacities and other challenges often faced when designing, planning and implementing restoration programmes.
