Jointly organized by the Asian Forest Cooperation Organization (AFoCO) and the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO), the “AFoCO-ITTO Capacity Building Workshop on Forest Landscape Restoration in the Asia-Pacific Region: Developing capacities needed for successful Forest Landscape Restoration interventions in the Tropics” sought to enhance the capacities of AFoCO and ITTO member countries in the Asia-Pacific region to undertake successful restoration initiatives using the new ITTO Guidelines for Forest Landscape Restoration in the Tropics. Specifically, the workshop aimed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the core principles and associated guiding elements that form the foundation of forest restoration. The workshop also provided an excellent opportunity to share lessons from national and local restoration cases, as well as the challenges and opportunities they can present for local people and other stakeholders. This publication provides highlights from these keynote talks and lectures and outlines salient points raised during the follow-up discussions.
The report is available in the form of a Workshop Highlights and a Full Report.
