Synergies between climate mitigation and adaptation in forest landscape restoration

This study entails extensive literature review of linkages between adaptation and mitigation at the global policy level, through analysis of relevant policies and protocols in the context of climate change in general and forest landscape restoration (FLR) in particular. This is followed by literature review regarding the current discourse and understanding of adaptation and mitigation options and the synergies between the two, specifically in the context of FLR. Further, the study develops case studies to explore linkages between national policies on mitigation and adaptation in El Salvador, India, Kenya, Mexico, Rwanda, Uganda and Vietnam. The final section provides recommendations for integrated mitigation-adaptation options at international and national policy levels.
