The authors from CIFOR would like specifically to thank the various research and support staff, as well as workshop and case study participants from the different countries for their invaluable contributions to the project “Review of Forest Rehabilitation Initiatives: Lessons from the Past”, which formed the basis for their chapter in this book. Finally, WWF would like to thank Lafarge for supporting the development of its forest landscape restoration programme.
