Utilising landscape scale forest ecosystem rehabilitation as a cost effective bridge for the integrated deployment of national land-based mitigation and adaptation strategies
Objective and activities
The rehabilitation of forest ecosystems – in an ecologically and socially compatible way and at a larger landcape scale – can provide a bridge while maximizing co-benefits for communities and biodiversity. This project will pilot initiatives to optimize the implementation of actions that simultaneously contribute to both land-based mitigation and adaptation strategies via landscape scale forest ecosystem rehabilitation. It will achieve this goal by: (1) Identifying national “best bets” for optimizing coherent implementation of land-based mitigation and adaptation strategies; (2) Supporting national policy and programme development that integrates the “best bets”; and (3) Stimulating commitment among decision-makers and investors through global analysis, networking and policy influence.
