The study analyzes 11 freely available monitoring tools and apps which can support local ecosystem restoration implementers to track and report their activities and progress. The study does so by comparing each tool's functionalities, technical requirements, and user-friendliness. Morover, it assesses the tools' potential to record multiple indicators that reflect the multilayered outcomes of restoration including climate, ecologic and socio-economic benefits.

The report was commissioned by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) as part of the project ”Support for the Design and Implementation of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration“ (DEER), which GIZ implements on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Protection, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) with funding from the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The report was written by geoSYS.
