Monitoring of forest and landscape restoration at the national and local levels

As of: March 2019

Objective and activities

This project will create a urgently needed system for monitoring forest and landscape restoration (FLR) and the Bonn Challenge that: (1) uses higher resolution data than existing systems, (2) measures state (baseline) and change (monitoring), (3) uses biophysical indicators and socioeconomic indicators to determine benefits, and (4) creates a marketplace to connect investors with restoration activities. The project will start in Rwanda and El Salvador, at both the national and priority landscape scales. The project team will then replicate this pilot experience at the national scale in Kenya, Honduras and Nicaragua and will build on baseline data collected in project 12_III_049.
