The Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) Hub is a new partnership among the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and World Resources Institute (WRI), in consultation with and supported by the German Government (BMU-IKI). Envisioned to be fully functional by the beginning of 2023, preparations for the FLR Hub are now under way. The Hub will be demand-responsive to countries, local stakeholders, and partners seeking to overcome FLR bottlenecks and build on success factors to accelerate and scale FLR implementation. It aims to generate climate and biodiversity benefits and achieve human well-being.
There are six countries of implementation: Brazil, Colombia, Madagascar, Peru, Tanzania, and Uganda.
