WWF´s Forest Practice has outlined three forest conservation outcomes and one of them is to achieve 350 million hectares of forest landscapes under restoration by 2030. Clearly, it is understood that this can only be achieved by positioning the WWF´s networks as part of joint efforts with a wide set of stakeholders and with on the implementation of effective strategies towards the Bonn Challenge goals. WWF has been, since 2000, working with partners around the world to help create and accelerate forest landscape restoration (FLR). Aiming to upscale our organization impact and engagement, we joined the AFR100 Initiative, the Initiative 20×20, the Global Partnership on Forest and Landscape Restoration and about to join the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. Complementary, we are developing internal initiatives to regionally structure our country work around FLR, named FLR in Africa Initiative and the Transformational Initiative in FLR in Latin America focusing around strengthening policy and enabling governance; enabling finance and markets mechanisms and delivering FLR on the ground. An active community of practice and innovation has been created with more than 250 employees. Across the network a diverse set of actions are developed, for instance, the Trillion Tree joint venture with WCS and Birdlife, and several studies and publications. We expect that during the next 10 years our work will continue to play a strategic role in the global FLR agenda and directly contribute to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
