This website is produced as part of the Comparative Research Project on Landscape Restoration for Emissions Reductions, a collaboration between Wageningen University & Research (Laboratory of Geo-Information Science and Remote Sensing) and The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), supported by USAID.

Within the scope of CIAT’s research program on restoration of degraded lands, this project focuses on understanding and characterizing ongoing and pledged restoration activities in Latin America. Through comparative analysis we aim to get more insight into what leads to successful activities and to assess the environmental impacts of such projects.

The overall goal of this research program is to improve sub-national and local restoration initiatives through identification of institutional and technical arrangements that lead to successful implementation of restoration activities.
