Knowledge and experiences on forest landscape restoration (FLR) gathered by scientists, implementers and organizations are of upmost importance. Since 2018, WWF has been actively collecting lessons through a specific learning process. An “Experiences in Forest Landscape Restoration” series composed of an analysis of seven longterm (over 10 year-old) projects from Asia, Africa, South America and Europe took place. Today, as we are about to embark on the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030), the purpose of this presentation is to synthesise the findings, data and lessons, that have been collected through this series. Based on our results, we will discuss FLR working principles, metrics used for monitoring and evaluation, and lessons learnt. We highlight some key challenges for the Decade (monitoring, complexity, gaps). How to best define the landscape to restore? What kind of activities are the most frequently needed in FLR implementation? What kind of key performance indicators (KPIs) are used or needed to report to donors, to demonstrate and monitor impacts of FLR? This analysis across seven landscapes leads to 81 lessons learnt and 14 meta lessons.
