Forest management and restoration

Export citation

A number of ambitious global plans are asking countries to restore millions of hectares of forest by 2020, including the African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative (AFR 100), the Bonn Challenge, the Convention on Biological Diversity Aichi Targets and Initiative 20x20.

To help nations meet their restoration targets, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) is working on two main areas: forest landscape restoration and building national and local capacity in forest management. Scientists aim to address factors that help or hinder rural people’s access to forest resources and to find more equitable ways to manage forests for better productivity.
