Forest Landscape Restoration is "an idea whose time has come," says Stewart Maginnis, Global Director of the Nature-based Solutions Group at IUCN. Inside this exciting and timely re-boot of arborvitae, the IUCN magazine on forest conservation, you'll find critical updates on forest landscape restoration - what it is and how far we've come - and new stories on the global effort to identify, map, restore and safeguard the world's degraded and deforested lands.

"We are in a strong position now," Maginnis says, "to help ensure that Forest Landscape Restoration fulfils its potential as a means of boosting local livelihoods, ecosystem health, and our capacity to slow down and adapt to climate change." With decades of work and learning behind us and a global restoration movement underway, the time truly has come to restore the world's degraded lands.
