Bonn Challenge 2.0: Implementing Restoration Partnerships

Co-Chairs' Summary

In all regions of the world where deforestation had reached large numbers over the past decades, restoration efforts are now gaining political priority. Efforts to reduce deforestation and restore forest landscapes go hand in hand. In order to further raise ambition for forest landscape restoration (FLR), the Governments of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Kingdom of Norway along with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the World Resources Institute (WRI) hosted the Bonn Challenge 2.0 High Level Roundtable on March 20-21, 2015 as a contribution to the Global Partnership on Forest Landscape Restoration (GPFLR).
