Bottlenecks for the Restoration of Chilean Native Forests
During the last 5 years, the Mediterranean zone of Chile, considered as one of the global biodiversity hotspots, have undergone major disturbances that affected nearly 600,000 ha of forest plantations and native forests, creating an imperative for large-scale restoration of burned areas. Despite increasing investment in forest restoration in Chile, however, there are significant bottlenecks that will impeded successful implementation of and outcomes from restoration. This presentation will provide an overview of forest degradation and restoration initiatives in Chile, the primary bottlenecks to success and the main governmental and private efforts planned to overcome them.
