The Forest and Landscape Restoration Mechanism

Monitoring

Monitoring has a critical role to support the implementation of FLR activities and facilitate communication and reports of achievements.  Monitoring is fundamental for the continuation of restoration as, by assessing results, learning and communicating outcomes, it inspires replication and allows for transferable results while at the same time ensuring transparency and providing evidence of progress and impact in relation to specific goals and objectives. The techniques used for monitoring include remote sensing, field inventories, national statistics and community-based surveys.
