The extensive deforestation and degradation of tropical forests is a significant contributor to the loss of biodiversity and to global warming. Restoration could potentially mitigate the impacts of deforestation, yet knowledge on how to efficiently allocate funding for restoration is still in its infancy. This paper investigates investments in restoration in the tropical landscape of East Kalimantan, Indonesia, and provides useful guidance for locating the most cost effective reforestation areas.
