The Global Partnership on Forest Landscape Restoration (GPFLR)
The GPFLR is a proactive network that unites governments, organisations, communities and individuals with a common goal: restoring the world's degraded and deforested lands. The partnership was initiated with the purpose of catalysing and reinforcing a network of diverse examples of restoration of forests and degraded lands that deliver benefits to local communities and to nature, and fulfill international commitments on forests.
Through active engagement, collaboration and the sharing of ideas and information, the GPFLR promotes an integrated approach that seeks to ensure that forests, trees and the functions that they provide are effectively restored, conserved and employed to help secure sustainable livelihoods and ecological integrity for the future. The partnership does not seek to establish a parallel policy process or duplicate the efforts of others, but rather to weave a thread through existing activities, projects, processes and institutions to encourage and reinforce the positive roles and contributions of each of them.
Several learning sites have been identified within the GPFLR, representing a variety of geographical areas, stakeholder groups, socio-economic conditions and restoration strategies.
Global Restoration Council
The Global Restoration Council aims to harness the collective wisdom, influence and energy of its members to catalyse and sustain a global movement for restoration. The council is a voluntary, non-departmental entity supported by the World Resources Institute (WRI) on behalf of, and as a contribution to, the GPFLR and in support of other organisations that are actively engaged in restoration activities.
