28/11/2017 14/12/2017


The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has the pleasure to invite you to join the new FLR community of practice and attend an online knowledge sharing forum “Innovative Approaches for Monitoring Forest and Landscape Restoration” (FLR), the first of its kind.

Monitoring progress on global forest and landscape restoration is key to improving the livelihoods of millions of people. Join us for the inaugural webinar on Thursday 30 November 2017. In addition to the webinar, the online forum includes a 2-week facilitated online discussion from 28 November to 14 December. English will be the working language of the knowledge sharing forum.

The 1.5 hour webinar aims to answer these questions:  

  1. Which innovative technologies currently exist for monitoring?  
  2. How can we make the best use of these innovative tools? 
  3. How can we ensure people participate and use these tools in their monitoring activities?

The forum is organized for practitioners of Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR), in particular: 

  • National focal points on FLR
  • Academia
  • Private sector
  • Civil society organizations working with communities on FLR implementation

In addition, the following groups may find the forum useful:

  • Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) experts from FLR projects
  • Government officers responsible for monitoring and reporting on FLR, climate, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Monitoring FLR efforts play a critical role in several ways:

  • Support the implementation of FLR interventions at all scales and provide feedback for adaptive management and learning
  • Provide evidence of progress, achievements and impact in relation to expectations and targets
  • Support reporting to FLR investors from different sources and foster additional investments
  • Support reporting on national, regional and international commitments
