 More details:

More than USD 300 billion per year is needed to restore the world’s degraded land and achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 15.3 to combat desertification, restore degraded land and soil – including land affected by desertification, drought and floods – and strive to achieve a land-degradation neutral world by 2030.

At the local level the sources for resources are somewhat different. In many countries, guidance is needed how to incentivize and enable local and sub-national actors (such as farmers, small and medium-sized enterprises, civil society, including community organizations and local governments) with financial and non-financial support to produce FLR outcomes.

The knowledge-sharing forum aims at developing participants’ knowledge on the ways how finance can be directed to benefit the local stakeholders engaged in Forest and Landscape Restoration.

Welcome!
