The session on "Forest Landscape Restoration and Land Degradation Neutrality in Asia" during the Asia Pacific Forestry Week 2016 focused on the holistic forest landscape restoration (FLR) approach.

This FLR approach aims at both ecological restoration and socioeconomic improvement and calls for cooperation among various stakeholders to cope with the social challenges in implementing forest landscape restoration. This requires adequate capacity building for each level of stakeholders (government officials, research, technician, local community etc.) as well as knowledge sharing and technical cooperation for effective plantation, agroforestry and sloping land management.

At the meeting participants shared information on the achievements and challenges of the forest and landscape restoration approach in Central Asia, Northeast Asia (Mongolia and DPR of Korea) and Southeast Asia (Myanmar and Vietnam).
