A Method for Developing Forest Landscape Restoration Strategies by Rapidly Assessing the Status of Key Success Factors.

Most countries around the world have an untapped resource opportunity lying within their borders: the restoration of forest landscapes. “Forest landscape restoration” is the process of regaining ecological functionality and enhancing human wellbeing across cleared or degraded forest landscapes.

It can result in a variety of land uses, ranging from vast tracts of dense natural forests, to high-yield agroforestry systems, to a mosaic of wooded areas amid productive agricultural fields. Forest landscape restoration does not call for increasing tree cover beyond what would be ecologically appropriate for a particular location.
