    1.6 billion people worldwide are dependent on forests for their food, fuel, water, medicine and livelihoods. Forest landscape restoration (FLR) has been identified as a leading intervention to deter human pressure on primary and intact forests while restoring degraded lands to become multifunctional and productive for human use. In addition, natural climate solutions, of which restoration is a leading pathway, could provide 37% of cost-effective CO2 mitigation needed through 2030. Through the Bonn Challenge, 47 commitments have been made to restore 160 million hectares. The implementation of these commitments can be accelerated through action by governments and the private sector as well as engagement with indigenous peoples and local communities.

    As we look to move from commitment to implementation for the Bonn Challenge, what are the prominent barriers, bottlenecks and challenges you have identified that are hindering or slowing implementation of restoration projects?

    Have you successfully addressed any of these barriers? If so, how and what lessons have emerged?
