Getting restoration ready

By the World Agroforestry Centre team.

Under the theme “Are You Restoration Ready?” over 50 participants from over 10 African countries engaged in a pre-workshop event to collectively build a framework and identify key innovations needed to implement restoration in preparation for engagement in the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) conference in Nairobi.

The social media hashtags #YILRestoration #GLFNairobi2018 and #thinklandscape were put to good use.

World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) and UN Environment colleagues contributed to the workshop through the Knowledge Marketplace.

Drawing on their experience of implementing restoration options across Africa, the researchers opened with “Landscape Talks” to provide an overview of the key topics: Economic Viability, Adaptive Management Approaches, Policy Coherence and Stakeholder Engagement.
