Publication Date:

This study entailed extensive literature review of linkages between adaptation and mitigation at the global policy level, through analysis of relevant policies and protocols in the context of climate change in general and forest landscape restoration (FLR) in particular. This was followed by literature review regarding the current discourse and understanding of adaptation and mitigation options and the synergies between the two, specifically in the context of FLR. An important aspect of the study was to develop case studies to explore linkages between national policies on mitigation and adaptation in 7 priority countries. The final section provides recommendations for integrated mitigation-adaptation options at international and national policy levels.
