Forest Landscape Restoration Brazil experiences

Present opportunities for tackling climate change by scaling up Forest Restoration Landscapes in Brazil

A study led by The Nature Conservancy estimated that there are 678 million hectares of land available for reforestation globally with the potential to sequester more than 10 gigatons of carbon (Natural Climate Solution). This is approximately 10% of the emissions reductions needed by 2030 to limit global warming to less than 2°C.

Brazil has committed to recovering 12 million hectares of native vegetation by 2030 in its National Plan for the Recovery of Native Vegetation and the Bonn Challenge. Experiences from these 4 institutions could scale up Forest Landscape Restoration and share some success cases that can engage other countries, states and stakeholders.
