Webinar: A “Seal of Approval” for Forest Restoration – The SER Mediterranean Project and Views from Practitioners
11 October 2023 – 16:00-17:30 [GMT+1]
In the upcoming SUPERB/IUFRO Forest Restoration Talk, organized in partnership with the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER), we will delve into their Mediterranean Forest Restoration Certification Pilot Project. This initiative seeks to pioneer a novel “seal of approval” system for forest restoration, aimed at validating the quality of on-the-ground restoration endeavors. It provides a structured framework along with an auditing process that ensures ecological restoration meets established standards.
During this event, George Gann, SER’s International Policy Lead, will share insights derived from the Mediterranean project. Additionally, he will provide an overview of the newly established Standards of Practice, emphasizing how they can lend support to the planning, execution, and financing of restoration initiatives.
Distinguished speakers include:
- George Gann, International Policy Lead, Society for Ecological Restoration (SER)
- Michael Kleine, Deputy Executive Director & Coordinator, International Union of Forest Research Organizations, Special Programme for Development of Capacities (IUFRO-SPDC)
Our moderators for the event are:
- Magda Bou Dagher-Kharrat, Principal Scientist at the Mediterranean Facility of the European Forest Institute and Coordinator of the SUPERB project
- Andreas Bolte, Coordinator of the IUFRO Task Force “Transforming Forest Landscapes for Future Climates and Human Well-Being”
