Restoration could potentially mitigate the impacts of deforestation, yet knowledge on how to efficiently allocate funding for restoration is still in its infancy.

Forest restoration and rehabilitation may be carried out on unproductive or abandoned agricultural land, deforested grasslands, brushlands, scrublands or barren areas, and in understocked or degraded forests. Forests may be restored and rehabilitated by protective measures (e.g.

protection from fire or grazing and erosion control), measures to. Forests may be restored and rehabilitated by protective measures (e.g. protection from fire or grazing and erosion control), measures to accelerate natural recovery (e.g.

through direct seeding or by planting seedlings in degraded primary or secondary forests), measures to assist natural regeneration (e.g. through weed control on degraded lands. The ITTO guidelines for the restoration, management and rehabilitation of degraded and secondary forests have been formulated to help communities realize that potential.

The concept of forest degradation tends to be addressed in broad terms, and existing definitions are difficult to apply in practice. These definitions are based on a reduction in the production of ecosystem goods and services, but fail to address how, when and to what degree this reduction—which ultimately leads to degradation of a forest— by: 3.

The restored plot stores at least tons more CO 2 per hectare than the degraded plot, and also provides 10 times more livestock fodder, as well as firewood and habitat for a wide range of plant and animal life.

By working with governments, investors and farmers, scientists working in the Restoring Degraded Landscapes (RDL) research theme explore how to restore agricultural lands that have been mismanaged or overexploited and protect all agricultural land from degradation.

Only a handful studies concerning the systematic prioritization of restoration on degraded tropical forests address the heterogeneity of these landscapes but have not explicitly accounted for carbon accumulation as a restoration objective (e.g. Marjokorpi and OtsamoGoldstein et al ).
