Our mission and vision
Forest Landscape Restoration is an approach promoted by IUCN and WWF that goes far beyond just planting trees.
It aims to get the right activities in the right places in order to conserve biodiversity and enhance options for people's livelihoods at the landscape level. Like a good investment portfolio, it sets out both to reduce risk and ensure a good long-term rate of return.
IUCN and WWF believe that good restoration can only take place when key stakeholders are involved in making informed choices about the type and configuration of forest establishment they wish to see in their landscape. Moreover local involvement cannot stop there - communities everywhere, from Scotland to Sudan, have to be given a meaningful role in shaping, and benefiting from, the management of future forest resources.
