Abstract [en]

Poorly planned, large-scale ecological restoration projects may displace agricultural activities and potentiallylead to the clearance of native vegetation elsewhere, with associated impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem ser-vices. Yet few studies have considered these risks and the ways in which restoration can increase competition forland. Here, we address this issue by examining whether large-scale restoration of the Brazilian Atlantic Forestcould displace cattle production, as a result of land shortages. Although the risks of displacement are indeedhigh when reforestation is planned in areas with high cattle productivity, we discuss how these risks can beminimized through a combination of productivity increases, a regional restoration planning framework, andthe prioritization of marginal agricultural land for restoration. We also consider how restoration can, in somecircumstances, be made more economically sustainable by incorporating income-generating activities such asexploitation of timber and non-timber forest products, certification, and payments for ecosystem services.
