IUCN Call for papers: Enhancing food security through forest landscape restoration

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has issued a call for papers which provide empirical and scientific evidence of how forest landscape restoration could contribute to enhance food security.

Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) is a process that aims to regain ecological integrity and enhance human well‐being in deforested or degraded forest landscapes. It involves people coming together to restore the function and productivity of degraded forest lands ‐ through a variety of place‐based interventions, including new tree plantings, managed natural regeneration, or improved land management.

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has issued a call for papers which provide empirical and scientific evidence of how forest landscape restoration could contribute to enhance food security. The call for papers gives researchers the opportunity to showcase their work and to support the Bonn Challenge and the New York Declaration on Forests, which seek to restore 150 million hectares by 2020 and 350 million hectares of deforested and degraded forest landscapes by 2030, respectively.

An extended abstract (maximum 2 pages) must be submitted by March 10th 2015. Based on the number and nature of submissions, a committee will select the ones that are most suitable for the goals of the publication. The selected authors will be invited for a workshop in Washington, DC to share their work and knowledge among other experts. This workshop should provide ideas to be incorporated in the final article or case study to be used for the final publication.
