  • The Atlantic Forest Restoration Pact (AFRP) was created to coordinate the reforestation efforts of public and private institutions, government, companies, and landowners to achieve optimal results for conservation of biological diversity.  The Pact operates on the idea that large-scale integration of projects is required to address the restoration of the Atlantic Forest.
  • The AFRP aims to restore 15 million hectares (37 million acres) of Atlantic Forest by 2050.
  • The AFRP strategy consists of disseminating information and experiential knowledge on restoration, generating funds for restoration, influencing policy that favors restoration, monitoring restoration projects, taking advantage of payment for ecosystem services, and generating restoration-related employment.
  • The AFRP system of management includes a steering committee comprised of 16 government and non-government organizations (see "Affiliations"), an executive office, and 5 working groups.
  • The website includes background information on the Atlantic Forest, descriptions of methodology for identifying target areas for restoration, and species lists used in reforestation.
