Browse through our newsletter issues, with a selection of articles, news & opinion on our core topics of forest ecosystems and sustainable livelihoods, or check special announcements regarding the activities of Reforestation World and its partners.

Our February issue is focused on landscape restoration and certified timber production. Our selection of articles looks into some of the critical aspects: the impacts of large-scale projects, the challenges of proving impact with robust scientific data and the difficulties of implementing certification schemes that try to incorporate multiple dimensions. Plenty of food for thought, we hope.
Our January issue looks at commodities and some of the efforts (and challenges) in making their production more sustainable while contributing to restore degraded landscapes and improve livelihoods. The video highlight takes on the end-consumer's role in this work. Good reading and a good start of 2019!
Our November issue looks into the connections between forests, plantations and adaptations to climatic variations. We also look into the growing use of wood as a building material and the extraction of non-food resources from forests. Our selected video shows how small-scale farmers are often a crucial part of restoration and conservation efforts.
In this issue, a special mention to our summer events and to the Right Livelihood Awards 2018, bestowed to two people with a long work on land and forest restoration. We then look into a selection of best practices and challenges in adopting agroforestry, move on to forest-based commodities in the supply chain and finish with a book suggestion.
This month's issue looks into the difficult balance between forests and plantations, taking palm oil as an example of the different issues at stake. We then move on to FLR - Forest (and) Landscape Restoration and REDD+ approaches. The monthly online course suggestion looks into business approaches to sustainable landscape restoration.
In this issue, we go from urban trees to mountain forests, with a look on the impact of gender on restoration efforts and a e-course on REDD+. Also, don't forget to check the upcoming Latsis conference in Zürich, Switzerland, joining several international experts to discuss how to scale-up forest restoration.
In this issue: how and when to assess the success of forest restoration efforts, agroforestry in the tropics and a review of how restoration opportunities are also business opportunities. In addition, check our suggested event, where several international experts get together in Zurich to discuss how to scale-up forest restoration.
In this issue, our selection of articles looks into how deforestation is linked to water scarcity (as presented in our selected video), how agroforestry can link better agriculture with restoration efforts, and how forest restoration is used for disaster risk reduction. In addition, check our suggested event, where perennial plants are given a place at the table.
For our first newsletter issue, we look into deforestation and the role played by different industry sectors. From there, we move on to ecosystem restoration initiatives and close off with a book suggestion on... forests! Our "video of the month" gives a quick overview of the book. We hope you enjoy the recommended readings!
