Introducing the Monitoring Tools Guide


Monitoring is critical for ensuring that restoration objectives are on track. However, there is little guidance on establishing monitoring systems and what tools are available to support monitoring. 

The Restoration Monitoring Tools Guide is the starting point for setting up an effective restoration monitoring system. This guide fills that gap – providing information on the essential steps for effective monitoring and a ToolFinder app that helps you decide what tools best support your monitoring activities.

The tool guide was developed by Climate Focus and World Resources Institute in collaboration with the Monitoring Task Force of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration and several local and international organizations.

Join this webinar with a panel of exciting speakers to learn how this Tools Guide can help you determine the best monitoring tools for your restoration goals.

Simultaneous interpretation will be available in French, Spanish, and Portuguese.
