Forest Landscape Restoration

FLR is an ongoing process of regaining ecological functionality and enhancing human well-being across deforested or degraded forest landscapes. FLR is more than just planting trees – it is restoring a whole landscape to meet present and future needs and to offer multiple benefits and land uses over time.

GREENLIFE West Africa successfully implemented the Restoration Opportunity Assessment Methodology (ROAM) studies in Liberia and Sierra Leone under the Mano River Ecosystem Conservation and International Water Resources Management Project funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and managed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Mano River Union.

GREENLIFE Sierra Leone is implementing Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) training and awareness raising activities in the Gola Rainforest National Park, developing guidance documents specific to each site and relating to the possibilities of using tree systems, organizing local governance structures and training farmers to manage the FLR activities.
