Landscape forestry in the tropics: Science meets policy
XV World Forestry Congress Side Event
Sub-theme 1: Turning the tide: reversing deforestation and degradation

How can drivers of change be converted to foster forest-based livelihoods and contribute to conservation and restoration of ecosystem services at landscape scale? Are protected areas, incentive mechanisms or other policy measures effective? How can land use planning, forest governance and sustainable livelihoods provide synergies to prepare intact forest landscapes with increasing charcoal, fuelwood and timber demands? The side event will address these questions presenting key research findings of the Landscape Forestry in the Tropics (LaForeT) project from 36 landscapes in Ecuador, Philippines and Zambia. Policy implications derived from LaForeT will be reflected together with invited speakers from the three countries during a panel discussion. The side event provides a platform where “science-meets-policy”. It discusses the way forward in combating deforestation and forest degradation in the Global South, and why landscape-based approaches need to receive more attention in policy processes such as REDD+ and Forest Landscape Restoration initiatives.

Convening organizations:
Thünen Institute of Forestry (Germany), Copperbelt University (Zambia), Universidad Estatal Amazónica (Ecuador), University of the Philippines Los Baños, Ministry of the Environment, Water and Ecological Transition (Ecuador), Forest Foundation Philippines, WeForest (Zambia)
