Your expertise matters, please complete our user need survey and win an Amazon voucher!

We need your valuable input to shape the ForestWard Observatory, a tool to be developed by the FORWARDS project. This long-lasting practical tool will support decision-making at local and national levels, offering operational information for climate-smart forestry and restoration management, and providing a strategic overview of future risks, critical vulnerabilities and threats to European forests.

Participate in our user need survey to help us understand your needs better. Your input is crucial in designing an observatory that meets the specific requirements of forest management stakeholders like you.

This survey will take approximately 15 minutes. We appreciate your contribution and your valuable insight deserves a reward. Every tenth respondent, who fully answers our survey before the 15th of February 2024, will receive an Amazon voucher worth 40 euro*.

Answer our survey on restoration practices and help us improve forest restoration in Europe!

Are you active in forest restoration or were you part of any restoration actions in the past? Then you have precious knowledge to share! We at SUPERB are conducting a survey to compile a multidisciplinary knowledge base of practical restoration across Europe that will help us determine what influences success or failure in forest restoration.

We would be grateful for your participation in the survey through this link.

The survey is aimed at forest managers, restoration practitioners, and any other stakeholders involved in specific restoration projects. It seeks to understand your general knowledge about forest restoration, restoration actions, and to assess the result of your restoration activities through precise metrics.

The data from the survey, led by SUPERB partner Instituto de Ciencias Forestales (ICIFOR-INA) of CSIC (Spanish National Research Council), will be anonymised and results made publicly available to support forest managers’ decisions and improve future restoration actions.

Forest restoration is understood as any action or project that aims to improve the biodiversity, ecological integrity and provision of services in forest ecosystems, such as rewilding, reforestation, afforestation, remediation, rehabilitation, prestoration (restoration that specifically includes climate change adaptation), or any shift in direction towards a closer-to-nature forest management.
