ITTO-IUFRO Learning Modules on Forest Landscape Restoration


FLR is about using holistic approaches to restore ecological functioning of degraded landscapes and – at the same time – creating diverse socio-economic benefits for people living in the landscapes and beyond. But putting it into practice is not so easy. FLR has many dimensions, and educating future generations is crucial for its success.

The new learning modules developed by ITTO and IUFRO have been crafted to raise awareness among the next generation of professionals, policy- and decision-makers of the vital role that FLR will play in restoring degraded landscapes and contain the latest knowledge on FLR, drawing on publications such as the ITTO Guidelines for Forest Landscape Restoration in the Tropics; IUFRO's Practitioner’s Guide for Implementing Forest Landscape Restoration; IUFRO’s Occasional Paper No. 33–Forest Landscape Restoration Implementation: Lessons Learned from Selected Landscapes in Africa, Asia and Latin America and FAO’s Sustainable Financing for Forest and Landscape Restoration e-course.

The learning modules on forest landscape restoration were developed by experts from ITTO and IUFRO under the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) Joint Initiative on FLR with funding support by the GEF-approved project “Fostering Partnerships to Build Coherence and Support for FLR.”

The modules are available for free! Suggested citation: ITTO-IUFRO FLR learning modules (2021)
