The potential of natural regeneration as a cost-effective, nature-based tool for restoration is often overlooked. This information brief outlines specific recommendations for policy changes to make natural regeneration an integral component of forest and landscape restoration programs, and to thereby enhance its role in achieving large-scale restoration objectives and climate mitigation targets. The brief was produced in partnership by the CBD’s Forest Ecosystem Restoration Initiative, SER, the PARTNERS network, and FAO.
SER's International Standards for the Practice of Ecological Restoration provide a framework for guiding the development and implementation of ecological restoration projects in any ecosystem, anywhere in the world. The Standards are intended to help increase the success of restoration efforts at the local, project level and meet a growing need for clear guidance about restoration principles and key concepts as global environmental and sustainability agreements increasingly focus on restoration.
Restoration Ecology, the Society for Ecological Restoration's bi-monthly scientific and technical peer-reviewed journal, fosters the exchange of ideas among the many disciplines involved in the process of ecological restoration and includes original papers describing experimental, observational and theoretical studies spanning both the natural and social sciences. Addressing global concerns and communicating them to the international research and practitioner communities, the journal is at the forefront of a vital new direction in science and ecology.
The RRC provides practitioners, researchers, educators, students, and the public with access to a wide variety of resources, publications, and project information from around the world.Read More
