The Forest and Landscape Restoration Mechanism

Online Communities of Practice

The Forest and Landscape Restoration Mechanism (FLRM) Online Communities of Practices (CoPs) support Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR) by creating communications channels across diverse networks, promote innovation and technological support, facilitate space for sharing experiences and inspiring examples on the ground.

The aim of the FLRM CoPs is to open a network that brings together experience and learning to a virtual space through online exchange.

Engage and learn with others practitioners involved in FLR by joining our CoPs:

  1. Online Community of Practice for Forest and Landscape Restoration
  2. Local finance for forest and landscape restoration
  3. The Restoration Initiative Online Community

The FLRM CoPs offer:

  1. an online space for FLR practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and the private sector to find free technical advice and support for knowledge issues;
  2. structured learning opportunities that respond to its members’ needs;
  3. innovation processes and collection of key knowledge resources and makes them widely available;
  4. high-quality tools and knowledge documents.

This community supports the global restoration movement in achieving its goals, especially in the coming United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. As a member, you have access to:

  • webinars and the recorded videos
  • facilitated email-based exchanges – as often as you choose!
  • a network of FLR experts and practitioners
  • updates on job opportunities, events, news and knowledge resources.


By bringing practitioners together for this online discussion, participants can share knowledge and innovation, learn and further develop participatory FLR. The community will be central to all activities and it will shape joint actions and exchanges.

The Community has taken part in several online knowledge-sharing fora: to watch our webinars, see the dedicated page.
