The concept of forest landscape restoration is not a new idea. It builds on a number of existing rural development, conservation and natural resource management principles and approaches, bringing them together to restore multiple forest functions to degraded landscapes. Forests are addressed by several international and regional conventions and policy frameworks. In contribution to the global partnership, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Finland, in co- operation with the European Forest Institute and with financial support from the Ministry of the Environment of Finland organised an Expert Workshop on Forest Landscape Restoration in the Central and Northern European Region. The workshop took place in Hameenlinna, Finland on 6-8 October 2004. These proceedings compile the papers and presentations from the workshop.
