Case studies in forest and landscape restoration

The Global Partnership on Forest and Landscape Restoration’s report “Restoring forests and landscapes: the key to a sustainable future” presents case studies of the successful restoration of landscapes that have been affected by deforestation and land degradation.

Case studies include:

  • Planting trees next to rivers in Brazil and putting up fences to prevent cattle from trampling the vegetation and polluting the water.
  • Raising trees in fenced plots in Burkina Faso.
  • Land terracing and community forestry in Nepal.
  • Building dams, reforesting hilltops and developing agroforestry in China.
  • Clearing unwanted vegetation to restore forests in the United States.
