Ecosystem and Landscape Restoration Policies

In this area of work, the   Green Development Fund for the SICA region /REDD Landscape programseeks to strengthen regional governance structures that promote forest landscape restoration through policy frameworks at regional and national levels.

Ecosystem and landscape restoration is a long-term task that requires a consolidated operational-financial system at country level that integrates and coordinates the functions of participatory territorial planning, field execution, progress and impact monitoring, implementation of safeguards, and financial management.

It is the role of governments (particularly Ministries of Environment) to to create the legal basis  and provide technical guidance for the operation of a "national landscape restoration system" through policy tools, coordination platforms, co-investment and co-implementation processes. With the program’s technical assistance countries may consolidate their national restoration systems through the following:

A) The definition of national objectives and priorities for ecosystem and landscape restoration

B) The development of public policy tools to promote restoration,

C) Planning and territorial governance, for the participation, articulation and commitment of local actors in restoration actions,

D) Training in the use of techniques and resources available to implement restoration actions,

E) The development of monitoring systems to measure the progress and impacts of restoration actions at the national and international levels

F) The development of safeguards to ensure local participation, gender equity and respect for indigenous rights.
