Description

To meet countries’ national commitments to restoring degraded landscapes, adequate public and private investments are needed to support the different steps of the FLR cycle. Financing sources are more efficient when used in a coordinated way.​

This course has been developed to improve the awareness and capacities of practitioners and policy makers to analyse FLR financial needs and opportunities, so that they are more effective at securing and coordinating funding for FLR interventions.
