The Bonn Challenge has sparked efforts with high political value, where countries can present their commitments to contribute to climate change mitigation, without outside controls imposed upon them, in a format coherent with national capacity. 

The Bonn Challenge initiative has held regional meetings in Latin America, Africa, and Asia, serving as a platform for international dialogue in which countries can share their progress and the challenges they have faced in restoration efforts, as well as lessons learned in the implementation of national programs. 

Regional collaboration platforms such as AFR100 in Africa, 20x20 in Latin America, and international initiatives such as the the FAO FLR Mechanism and CBD Forest Ecosystem Restoration Initiative also contribute to and support the Bonn Challenge.
