his webinar will explore the IUCN’s work on forest landscape restoration through the Global Forest Conservation Programme of the IUCN Secretariat – part of the Nature-based solutions group. As one of three main business lines (including primary forests and locally-controlled forests), the Programme develops and supports international and global FLR initiatives. Specifically, this webinar will explore IUCN’s work on the Bonn Challenge and regional FLR initiatives like AFR100 through the Restoration Opportunities Assessment Methodology (ROAM), and the tracking of Bonn Challenge commitments through The Bonn Challenge Barometer. Time will also be devoted to exploring some of the Programme’s work with the Convention on Biological Diversity in making the connections between forest landscape restoration and biodiversity conservation. Overall, participants should acquire a deeper understanding of the work of the IUCN Secretariat on forest landscape restoration and the progress to date on the Bonn Challenge and FLR as a global initiative.
