Abstract

In summary, rainforest restoration is a long-term endeavour. The short-term funding paradigm that has prevailed in many replanting projects, particularly government schemes, has served restoration objectives poorly and resulted in a great waste of money. Renewed funding for restoration projects may soon be available from markets for carbon sequestration and 'biodiversity offsets'. Assuming these markets require projects to demonstrate sequestration and biodiversity outcomes over many decades, in return for long-term funding, they could give practitioners a real opportunity and incentive to implement successful restoration projects.
