Co-creating Conceptual and Working Forest and Landscape Restoration Frameworks Based on Core Principles

The FLoRES white paper presents the relevant background regarding FLR concepts, definitions and principles, discusses the challenges that confront effective and long-term implementation of FLR and describes the many benefits that a transformative criteria and indicators framework can bring to actors and different sectors involved in restoration when such a framework is anchored in the FLR principles.  The paper emphasises the need to co-develop and apply specifically tailored frameworks to help ensure that FLR interventions bring social, economic and environmental benefits to multiple stakeholders within landscapes and adjust to changing conditions over time.
