Forest Landscape Restoration Project- Phase II

The Forest Landscape Restoration Project Phase II was launched on April 1, 2019.

The project aims seeks to strengthen evidence supporting effective community-driven forest landscape restoration and its linkages with formal and customary rights. Launched on May 1, 2018.

This project has the below mentioned goals:

  • Build on the work done for Phase 1 up to March 2019 by quantifying the restoration benefits of community ownership or areas where communities have secure tenure rights—including the climate, biodiversity and livelihood benefits
  • Conduct analysis of change in regions where forest conditions have degraded and regenerated to identify priority areas for future investments using indicators like policies, infrastructure, demography etc. that impact change
  • Design a rights-based FLR framework (institutional, biophysical) to identify and categorize landscapes as regenerated or degraded
