In order to support the implementation of the UN Decade, a Task Force on Best Practices (TFBP) led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) was established with a focus on capacity development and knowledge dissemination. One of the TFBP's objectives is to promote mutual learning and knowledge sharing among restoration practitioners by collecting and disseminating good practices for ecosystem restoration. This is essential for avoiding repeated mistakes and for replicating and adapting successful practices in other situations with similar goals, thus enhancing capacities to undertake and scale up effective restoration initiatives in all sectors, ecosystems, and regions. 
 

To achieve this objective, the Task Force on Best Practices: i) collaborates with the UN Decade Monitoring Task Force (also led by FAO) to document good practices from the initiatives registered in the Framework for Ecosystem Restoration Monitoring (FERM) Registry; and ii) partnered with LIFE GoProFor, Panorama Solutions, and WOCAT to link their good practices through the development of a common search engine that facilitates access to the most relevant content for users according to their needs. 
 

The objective of this learning session is to raise awareness about:

  • The importance of sharing good restoration practices to enhance the capacity of restoration practitioners. 
  • Some of the different platforms available for documenting and disseminating good practices for ecosystem restoration, including the FERM Registry, LIFE GoProFor, Panorama Solutions, and WOCAT. 
  • The common search engine developed by the Task Force on Best Practices as a way to facilitate access to good practices for ecosystem restoration.  
  • What will you learn?
  • You will learn about one of the ongoing efforts of the UN Decade Task Force on Best Practices, particularly the framework to collect and disseminate good restoration practices.   
  • Additionally, you will gain an understanding of the importance of sharing such practices to promote knowledge exchange and improve the abilities of restoration practitioners. 
  • Finally, you will also be introduced to platforms that are available for documenting and disseminating good restoration practices, which may encourage them to submit their own practices.
