FLR Study

21. January 2021|In News

Since 2011, the Bonn Challenge translated UNFCCC and CBD targets into a global, implementation-driven movement for Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR). The main objective of the Bonn Challenge was to promote a private-sector driven implementation of FLR on the ground.

Displaying an equal consideration for climate, biodiversity and livelihood benefits, the aspiration grew to placing 150 Million hectares of degraded landscapes under restoration by 2020 and 350 Million hectares by 2030. This would ensure significant contributions to different multilateral environmental agreements and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This report summarizes the findings of the technical feasibility studies, the practical experiences and the challenges to successfully upscale the various FLR models in Central Kalimantan. The authors hope that the momentum created through the Bonn Challenge and the beginning of the UN Decade on Ecological Restoration will attract the support needed to tap the massive potential benefits of effective restoration in this part of Indonesia.
