RESTORE+: Addressing Landscape Restoration on Degraded Land in Indonesia and Brazil
Objective and activities
This project enhances land use planning capacity in relation to degraded and marginal lands in Indonesia and Brazil. The main focus of the project is in Indonesia where participatory crowdsourced mapping campaigns will be combined with land-use and supply chain modelling. The aim is to identify specific areas with scenarios for restoration and sustainable utilization and their implications on production, biodiversity, GHG emissions and social impacts (e.g. land tenure rights). In Brazil, we will enhance established land monitoring and modelling capabilities and support Brazil’s contribution to meeting the “Bonn Challenge”. We will identify degraded areas, assess restoration options and explore trade-offs associated with implementation of the Brazilian Forest Code. The project will develop online analytical and visualization tools for participatory land use governance and enable South-South cooperation between Indonesia and Brazil in land use monitoring, modelling and policy-making.
