 Restoration issues being debated at the global level: A 2017 brief written
as a call to action by the  FLoRES Taskforce:*

*Key points*

   - The Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR) movement is preparing for
   large-scale implementation globally.
   - It is crucial to pay attention to the quality of restoration
   interventions and outcomes.
   - Current tools for planning, assessment or best practice guidelines may
   not be sufficient to secure effective results.
   - The FLoRES Taskforce calls for the development of a Standard for FLR
   to capture the dynamic, multifunctional and incremental nature of the FLR
   - To guarantee its adoption, the FLR standard needs to be developed
   through a broad-based, participatory process to ensure it is fit for
   purpose and context adapted.
   - A Standard for FLR can bring multiple benefits for all stakeholders.
   - The purpose of this Brief is to raise awareness and call for action.

*Taskforce formed in September 2017 at a 3-day workshop organised by
WeForest and hosted by the University of São Paulo in Piracicaba, Brazil.
It consists of a group of international experts who gathered to discuss the
relevance, viability, structure and possible applications of a standard for
Forest and Landscape Restoration.
