Trillion Trees Guide to Investing in Forest Restoration

Trillion Trees Guide to Investing in Forest Restoration
The online tool provides guidance for investing in good forest restoration that will provide multiple social and environmental benefits.

A new tool from WWF, WCS and BirdLife International, the Trillion Trees Guide to Investing in Forest Restoration, helps those looking to support forest restoration by asking a series of questions to better understand the potential of any given restoration programme. The tool provides practical guidance for private, corporate, and institutional organisations to better understand the key indicators of good forest restoration – and a good investment – that delivers positive social, biodiversity and climate impacts.

The tool utilised a series of nine diagnostic questions for users to consider when assessing any forest restoration initiative. These include how a programme might deliver progress against the triple challenge the world faces: the urgent need to address the climate crisis, the loss of global biodiversity, and the increasing inequality of opportunities for people around the world.

Developed in collaboration with Nature4Climate, the guide follows the principles set out in the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration and other global guidance and drawing on the deep experience of the Trillion Trees partners over decades of expert conservation work.
