Bioversity International and a number of collaborators in Colombia produced ResTOOL, an innovative online tool to select climate ready trees and seed sources for tropical dry forest restoration. ResTOOL also takes into account climate change when choosing appropriate material, and includes information about the propagation of more than 300 tree species.
Relevance for the Short Term Action Plan on Ecosystem Restoration:
This resource is relevant for the implementation of activity C1 in that it provides a tool for selecting the appropriate tree species and seed sources for tropical dry forest restoration in Colombia. Furthermore, it aids the selection of tree species that would be best considering predicted environmental and climate changes, in line with activity C2.
- C1: Identify appropriate measures for conducting ecosystem restoration
- C2: Consider how restoration can support sustainability of agriculture/production
