Globally, Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR) is receiving increasing attention from governments and agencies for its potential to provide key ecosystem services and to improve human wellbeing. The Bonn Challenge, launched in Germany in 2011 and currently involving 56 nations, pledged to restore 150 million hectares of degraded and deforested areas by 2020 and 350 million hectares by 2030. So far, this is one of the largest initiatives based on FLR approaches. Other key global initiatives include the New York Declaration on Forests signed in 2014 and the Trillion Trees Partnership. Despite the prospect and emergence of FLR in recent years, many aspects of FLR, including governance, guidance for implementation and monitoring, success criteria and indicators, have only just begun to be understood. This Special Issue comprises articles that contribute to our understanding of FLR and of how to improve its planning, implementation, assessment, and monitoring. The papers in this Special Issue were presented at the International Conference on Forest and Landscape Restoration—Making it Happen, held in Manila, Philippines, on 25–27 February 2019.
