General

Forest degradation and deforestation have severe negative effects on livlihoods for rural and urban societies, biodiversity, climate and ecosystem services such as sutainable access to clean water. There is a urgent need to halt deforestation, restore degraded forest land and manage remaining forests sustainably. There are several international initiatives, processes and agreements that hav ambitions to address the challenges through forest and landscape restoration programs and there is an urgent need to provide capacity building to key stakeholders, not least forest smallholders and minorities. In response to these developments the Swedish Forest Agency submitted a proposal for an international capacity building programme to Sida titled "Locally Controlled Forest Restoration - A Governance and Market Oriented Approach to Resilient Landscapes". This contribution is a design support to the Swedish Forest Agency to develop a proposal for a capacity building programme with start in 2019.
