The Forest and Landscape Restoration Mechanism

Capacity-building workshop: management practices for the restoration of degraded Mediterranean forest landscapes

From 14/03/2023 to 17/03/2023

Location: Hammamet, Tunisia

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, in collaboration with the General Directorate of Forests of Tunisia, is organizing a capacity-building workshop for Mediterranean countries on the restoration of degraded forest landscapes from 14 to 17 March 2023.

This regional workshop serves as a part of the project "The Paris Agreement in action: scaling up forest and landscape restoration to achieve Nationally Determined Contributions", funded by the International Climate Initiative of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action.

The aim of this workshop is to share knowledge on the restoration of degraded Mediterranean forest landscapes with a focus on planning restoration, assisted natural regeneration and the role of forest genetic resources. In addition, participants can expect to gain an understanding of the cost-effective restoration and rehabilitation of forests and biodiversity in the Mediterranean region. Moreover, participants will be equipped with the following:

  • the scope of restoration interventions in the Mediterranean region;
  • advanced restoration interventions for Mediterranean forests and landscapes; and
  • how to apply the knowledge to daily work in the country of origin and at the Mediterranean regional level.

English and French interpretation will be provided for this knowledge-sharing workshop.
