Our research explores the matter of policy design to improve governance for forest restoration. Over the last decade, US national forest managers, working with various partners and collaborators, have been implementing new policies designed to facilitate collaboration and cross-jurisdictional work with prioritized investments. Through interviews and survey research, we found that these approaches led to desired changes, with some variation across sites, in large part because of collaborative mandates and requirements to plan at larger spatial extents. In particular, multi-year funding commitments to specific locations supported collective action and larger-scale planning. Challenges include maintaining treatments through prescribed fire, providing the necessary capacities to support these types of policies, and tracking the unintended consequences of these approaches on some resources and actors.
