Since 2019 the International Institute for Sustainability Australia (IIS AU) and the International Institute for Sustainability Rio (IIS Rio) have partnered with the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and other stakeholders to streamline access to spatial optimisation planning for forest ecosystem restoration. The aim of this project is to offer to all developing country Parties to the CBD with tropical forest, a Decision Support Platform (DSP) for multi-purpose spatial optimisation planning of forest ecosystem restoration, and to support countries in formulating more ambitious, realistic and specific tropical forest ecosystem restoration plans and targets within their global commitments.

The main goal of this series of webinars is to promote the uptake of the science in which the DSP is based by potential users (especially CBD focal points or government representatives). Further, it aims to get feedback from the participants to improve the DSP interface and the training itself, and to tailor the platform to the needs of users. Lastly, it aims to produce training material that will be made available within the DSP for future users, and to showcase the platform.

Participation is open upon registration. So far, 344 people from 91 countries across the globe have registered to participate. Most attendees were representatives from governmental agencies (ca. 42%), but they also come from Not-for-Profit organizations, academia and many other backgrounds.
