Building on synergies: Harnessing community and smallholder forestry for Sustainable Development Goals

Abstract:

IUFRO’s Policy Brief “Building on synergies: Harnessing community and smallholder forestry for Sustainable Development Goals” explores the common constraints that undermine community and smallholder forestry around the world, including lack of fundamental rights (e.g., tenure), bureaucratic hurdles, unfavourable commercial arrangements and illegality. It explores avenues to overcome these constraints such as the development of a supportive institutional setting, unlocking economic opportunities, realizing education and capacity building programs, and increasing systematic monitoring of outcomes.

Relevance for the Short Term Action Plan for Ecosystem Restoration:
By emphasizing the link between local land tenure rights and SDGs, this policy brief speaks to the legal and policy framework around land tenure emphasized by activity B2, the importance of strengthening education about restoration benefits in activity B3, and how restoration should be used to promote economic opportunity, relevant to activity B8.

Global Landscapes Forum (GLF)

Abstract:

The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) provides a platform for sharing information on sustainable land use, including restoration, with a focus on connecting, sharing, learning and acting. The Forum is dedicated to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Climate Agreement. The Forum takes a holistic approach to create sustainable landscapes that are productive, prosperous, equitable and resilient and considers five cohesive themes of food and livelihood initiatives, landscape restoration, rights, finance and measuring progress. It is led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), in collaboration with its co-founders UN Environment and the World Bank and Charter Members.

Relevance for the Short Term Action Plan for Ecosystem Restoration:
The GLF is of relevance to activity B3, under which educational systems should be employed to share information about restoration activities to raise awareness and connect people to restoration efforts in their communities.
