A method for developing forest landscape restoration strategies by rapidly assessing the status of key success factors.

The Restoration Diagnostic: A Method for Developing Forest Landscape Restoration Strategies by Rapidly Assessing the Status of Key Success Factors is a structured method for identifying which key success factors for forest landscape restoration are already in place, which are partially in place, and which are missing within a country or landscape that has restoration opportunities.

When applied prior to a restoration effort, the Diagnostic can help decision-makers and restoration supporters focus their efforts on the most important factors to get in place—before large amounts of human, financial, or political capital are invested.
