Project approach

Restore4More will operate at two spatial scales:

Regional assessments to be implemented in East Africa

Four project engagement landscapes have been established within the Karamoja cluster, which provides variation in climate, vegetation, land use, and livelihood strategies, and hence presents an array of challenges and opportunities in the biodiversity-water-climate nexus. In each engagement landscape, the project will interact more closely with local stakeholders and conduct concentrated, long-term transdisciplinary research.

Engagement landscapes


Conduct transdisciplinary research with key stakeholder groups using a co-learning and knowledge exchange approach.

Use a unique combination of field data and experiments, Earth Observation, modeling, participatory action research, and mixed methods.

Engage with policymakers and restoration practitioners and provide robust science-based evidence and tools to support and guide rangeland restoration efforts at scale.

Leveraging existing evidence, infrastructure and engagement

To contribute to the long-term research needed to generate knowledge on rangeland restoration, Restore4More is building on the knowledge, partnerships, research infrastructure, and experience from existing research projects, networks, and collaborations under the Formas-funded project ‘Drylands Transform: Achieving the SDGs in East African Drylands (2020-2024’, and Triple L Initiative (2013 to present).

Restore4More’s selection of the engagement landscapes builds off those established by Drylands Transform, allowing for closer and sustained interaction with local stakeholders and conducting more concentrated and long-term research.
