Abstract A relatively recent, yet increasingly popular approach, forest landscape restoration (FLR) is about returning forest to a landscape so that it can achieve both human wellbeing and biodiversity conservation objectives. Although FLR's objectives may be laudable, implementation has faced many obstacles, most importantly related to governance. Who decides what to restore? Where? How? Who wins and who loses? Who compensates? This thesis examines the relationship between the process of governance and that of FLR, seeking to identify existing knowledge on this intersection and bringing to bear experiences from FLR projects and other related disciplines. It also seeks to provide guidance to FLR practitioners in order for them to be in a position to integrate governance considerations in FLR implementation.
