The Forest Learners Kit currently contains a set of learning modules on forest landscape restoration (FLR) for high schools, forestry training centres, and universities in the tropics.  Their contents apply to the learning areas of science and social science, and relate to popular learning programs such as agriculture, climate change, environmental studies, forestry, geography, and planning & development studies.

The FLR Learning Modules were developed by experts from the International Tropical Timber Organisation (ITTO) and International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) under the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) Joint Initiative on FLR with funding support by the GEF-approved project "Fostering Partnerships to Build Coherence and Support for FLR."  PIP facilitated the implementation of this international assignment, and led the delivery of the first module.


Learning Modules on Forest Landscape Restoration

The Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) Learning Modules have been designed to foster the establishment of effective FLR interventions in the tropics, by carefully educating the next generation of policy-makers, decision-makers and implementers in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. The FLR Learning Modules comprise four PowerPoint presentations, together with PDF handouts for teachers and students. Each presentation covers a number of topics, with case-study videos, small group questions and student assignments.   

The Introductory Document contains more information about each module's design, content and guidelines.
