The Restoration Opportunities Assessment Methodology (ROAM), produced by IUCN and the World Resources Institute, provides a flexible and affordable framework approach for countries to rapidly identify and analyse forest landscape restoration (FLR) potential and locate specific areas of opportunity at a national or sub-national level.

In a nutshell
- The ROAM methodology was created in 2014. The on-line guide has been available since 2016.
- It can provide vital support to countries seeking to move forward with developing restoration programmes and landscape-level strategies.
- It also enables countries to define and implement pledges to the Bonn Challenge target to restore 150 million hectares worldwide by 2020, thereby helping interested nations meet existing international commitments under CBD, UNCCD and UNFCCC.
