They host workshops, publications, and international collaborative networks to provide “leading-edge restoration guidance to individuals and organizations worldwide.” They also have  a robust and dynamic platform to foster collaboration, knowledge sharing, networking, research, and policy discussions among the many actors and interests we represent.
