Restoration needs and opportunities in Africa’s Great Green Wall have been mapped and quantified for the first time with the aim of catalysing action to increase the resilience of people and landscapes to climate change
- The state of the world's genetic resources - Genetic considerations in ecosystem restoration using native tree species
The publication of this study is an important step in the implementation of the Global Plan of Action. It provides fundamental information for the achievement of knowledge based ecosystem restoration using native tree species. It draws attention to the importance of embedding genetic considerations in restoration activities, an aspect which is often overlooked both by restoration scientists and practitioners, but is crucial to rebuilding resilient landscapes and ecosystems.
Public policy makers from developed and developing countries, at all levels (national, regional, local), have the opportunity to take leadership as FLR financing champions. Even without controlling private capital, they can support resource mobilization in a number of ways This publication shares the experiences of some initiatives from around the world which public policy makers can learn from and adapt. It provides recommendations to help them improve their support to FLR financing by: • Mainstreaming FLR in State budgets • Setting up appropriate financing mechanisms • Engaging the private sector • Building alliances and partnerships.

This Infographic will report on the Key Messages of the related "Discussion Paper on Sustainable Financing for Forest and Landscape Restoration" (jointly producded by UNCCD/FAO) currently under finalization.
- Sustainable financing for forest and landscape restoration - Opportunities, challenges and the way forward
FAO and the Global Mechanism of the UNCCD have joined efforts to prepare this paper. It provides an overview of funding sources and financial instruments that could be used and adapted specifically for the implementation of FLR efforts at different levels. It identifies innovative financing mechanisms to support the achievement of these global targets and discusses the main challenges for enhanced FLR financing. Based on lessons learned through many related initiatives, it also proposes solutions to support the enabling conditions needed for sound FLR investments. This paper will help FLR stakeholders better understand the financial architecture related to FLR and identify areas that need further action.
