  • About Forest Landscape Restoration

  • It is an ongoing process of regaining ecological functionality and enhancing human well-being in deforestation or degraded forest landscapes.

  • It is much more than just planting trees – it is restoring entire landscapes to meet current and future needs and for many benefits and land uses over time.

  • This manifests through various processes such as: new plantations, managed natural regeneration, agroforestry, or better land management to accommodate the land use mosaic, including agriculture, protected wildlife reserves, managed plantations, riverside plantings, etc.
