IIS Introduces Restoration Project in South Africa´s Conference

Our executive director, Bernardo Strassburg, presented the project “Global Priorities for Restoration” at the World Conference on Ecological Restoration in Cape Town, South Africa, where he spoke about the cost-effectively on identifying priority areas for landscape restoration on a global scale.

During the event, a research paper named “A new approach to mapping landscape variation in the success of forest restoration in tropical and temperate forest biomes”, coordinated by IIS associate Renato Crouzeilles, was also published. This approach makes possible to identify areas where forest restoration for biodiversity could be more successful in tropical and temperate forest biomes. This is a key information to assist: 1) setting restoration goals; 2) indicating priority areas; 3) reducing the cost of implementing restoration  and 4) reducing the risk of investing in restoration actions.
