Forested landscapes play a critical role in maintaining social wellbeing, agricultural productivity and general ecosystem functioning. Recognizing this, under the Bonn Challenge, over 45 countries have pledged to collectively restore over 150 million hectares by 2020 and 350 million hectares by 2030. Under this project, Winrock has been supporting the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to develop and pilot a protocol for evaluating and reporting progress toward these restoration targets.
