The results of this study reveal that the full inclusion of crop production in the forest landscape restoration approach could produce largescale,
worldwide benefits for food security and therefore facilitate a wide uptake of restoration practices and the implementation of large
restoration projects. The positive impacts are multifaceted and significant in size: a reduction in malnourished children ranging from three
to six million; a reduced number of people at risk of hunger, estimated to be between 70 and 151 million; reduced pressure for expansion
of cropland; increased soil fertility; and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, while also increasing yields and productivity. The benefits from
restoration practices on crop production strongly suggest that a forest landscape restoration approach that meaningfully integrates agriculture
can facilitate the implementation of restoration plans on large amounts of land.
