Applying the Barometer of restoration

Authors: Imbach, Alejandro, Nello, T.,

The IUCN Restoration Barometer is a tool used by governments to monitor and record progress towards restoration goals in various terrestrial ecosystems, coasts, and inland waters. This document presents a synthesis of the results of the Restoration Barometer’s application in three countries: Guatemala (2011-2020), El Salvador (2014-2021), and Costa Rica (2011-2020). The goal is to examine and summarize the results obtained according to each country’s situation and highlight common patterns and trends in terms of policies, planning, monitoring, financing, and restoration impacts.
