Summary

This book has been written by a team of experts from a wide variety of institutions ... The result is by far the most comprehensive and easy to understand treatment of FLR yet written.' Achim Steiner (Director General, IUCN) and Manoel Sobral Filho (Executive Director, ITTO), from the Preface Forest loss and degradation have caused a decline in the quality of ecosystem services around the world. But fixing the problem takes more than just planting trees; practitioners increasingly realize that a landscape approach is essential. This handbook, authored and edited by international authorities in the field of forestry, is the first practical guide to using forest landscape restoration (FLR) to repair the damage done to forest lands by poor land management practice. Using research backed by respected institutions such as ITTO and the World Conservation Union (IUCN), it explains how to increase the resilience of landscapes and the communities they support through FLR.
