Leaders in Action: Achieving Forest Landscape Restoration Through Online Learning
Between May 2016 and March 2017, the Environmental Leadership and Training Initiative and IUCN conducted six online courses titled “Forest Landscape Restoration in the Tropics.” These courses were in response to the emerging trend of countries committed to restoring millions of hectares of land via the forest landscape restoration approach, which aims to achieve ecological, economic, and social benefits simultaneously. This paper highlights numerous success stories of individuals who participated in these courses.
Conclusions & Takeaways
The stories highlighted in this report demonstrate the benefits that are derived from providing capacity development to practitioners working on FLR throughout the world. These course not only supported future leaders but also contributed to the acceleration of FLR to meet the global commitments of restoration.
