On 17 May - 5 June 2018, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is holding the Forest and Landscape Restoration: Participatory Approaches and Monitoring Online Forum.
FAO has established a Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR) online community of practice. For those interested FAO is holding an online knowledge-sharing forum “Forest and landscape restoration: Participatory approaches and monitoring”.
When stakeholders participate in the process of forest and landscape restoration, the activities are more effective and sustainable. To learn more, and to share your experiences, join the webinar on Wednesday 23 May 2018. In addition to the webinar, the online forum includes a 3-week facilitated online discussion following the webinar on the Online Community of Practice for Forest and Landscape Restoration. The knowledge sharing forum will be conducted in English.
The knowledge-sharing forum aims to answer these questions:
Why is it important for the implementation and success of restoration activities that the relevant stakeholders participate?
What is the added value of using participatory approaches?
How can local populations and other key stakeholders best be engaged during the entire FLR process? How can the conditions that enable participation be created?
What are the key social aspects to be considered in FLR monitoring? What are the main lessons learned from monitoring social aspects of the FLR processes?
The forum is intended for the practitioners of forest and landscape restoration. Learn more about FAO's online communities of practice here.
