Enabling Factors to Scale Up Forest Landscape Restoration
FRO_FLR_Policy_Study-cover_39715b07a1.jpgThe time is now to make forest
restoration (FLR) at scale a success. This study seeks to better understand
enabling governance and economic factors that can inform FLR implementation,
based on sound evidence gathered from diverse contexts.
Enabling Factors to Scale Up Forest Landscape Restoration: The Roles of
Governance and Economics. Full Report with Case Studies
Published by WWF-Germany, November 2020
Author: Stephanie Mansourian, environmental consultant and Deputy
Coordinator of the IUFRO Task Force on Transforming Forest Landscapes for
Future Climates and Human Well-Being
WWF and IUFRO have come together to push the forest restoration agenda
forward using our combined scientific, policy and field implementation
expertise. Both of our organizations have been exploring lessons learned in
FLR (IUFRO FLR Snapshot and WWF FLR Field Experiences) to understand what
works and what doesn't as a basis for informing future implementation.
The purpose of this report is to identify the enabling factors at the
national or subnational scale (including specifically governance and
economic factors) that have motivated the initiation of forest restoration,
that have enabled its implementation at scale, and that are key to
It reviews case studies of 10 locations that have scaled up forest
restoration (Bhutan, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Georgia, Kenya,
Madagascar, Viet Nam, the Great Green Wall for the Sahara and Sahel, and
Brazil's Espírito Santo State) in order to identify possible enabling
factors related to governance and economics and thereby to guide future FLR

We hope this email finds you all in good health! Due to the pandemic we have decided to move the 3rd International Forest Policy Meeting (IFPM3) online. We will do our best to replicate the familiarity and good discussion climate that we are used to from previous IFPMs also in the online format. We hope you will join us in March and please take note of the updated submission deadlines and guidelines below and on the website: http://www.forstpolitik-umweltpolitik.uni-freiburg.de/lehre/IFPM%203
The conference will take place on the 17-18th of March, 2021. A few changes will be made due to the online format and most importantly, we will no longer accept poster presentations. Those of you that have submitted poster presentations will be contacted in the coming days. In order to accommodate participation from time zones other than CET, we will have sessions spread out over the day. Once your submission(s) have been accepted you will be contacted regarding your preferred time slots.
In the online format we will accommodate panels, individual oral presentations, and 3-minute-thesis (3MT) presentations. Please DO NOT submit individual abstracts if your presentation is already included in a panel submission. Panel submissions include the abstracts of all included presentations so there is no need to submit these individually.
The deadline for all submissions has been extended to the 11th of December and you will receive a notification of acceptance before the end of December.
The deadline for registration is 15th of January and includes the payment of a 50 EUR conference fee. The fee enables us to provide a high-quality online conference experience and guarantee good opportunities for participation.
