Afforestation and forest landscape restoration programs are growing priorities in global and national policy agendas, ranging from REDD+ to the Bonn Challenge, Forest Landscape Restoration, and numerous national programs in the Global South, yet there has been little systematic evaluation of the impacts of these programs on land cover or rural livelihoods, nor has there been investigation of the governance factors that mediate the success or failure of these programs. This panel, the second of 2 organized at this conference, reports on systematic attempts to measure the impacts of afforestation programs across the global south.
