SUPERB project – upscaling forest restoration

SUPERB “Systemic solutions for upscaling of urgent ecosystem restoration for forest-related biodiversity and ecosystem services” is a 4-year EU-funded Horizon 2020 project that was kicked off in December 2021 and coordinated by the European Forest Institute. The project consortium consists of 36 science and practice partners from all over Europe and is further supported by at least 90 associate project partners, CEPF being one of them.

The overall goal of SUPERB is to create a lasting enabling environment for transformative change towards large-scale forest and forest landscape restoration, which empowers decision-makers to take just and informed decisions for restoration of biodiversity, ecosystem services and carbon sequestration in a manner that minimises region specific trade-offs and maximises synergies between ecosystem services.

In practice the project will conduct 12 large-scale demonstrations in 13 countries across Europe to showcase best practices in forest restoration. It will also develop a multi-language, online Forest Ecosystem Restoration Gateway to provide practical, economic and governance supporting materials and best practice examples for high-quality restoration.

SUPERB will boost and measure its impact through its extensive and systematically enlarged stakeholder communities and networks, to ensure the relevance of the project outputs and their positive uptake.
