Operationalising the landscape approach for biodiversity and benefits: Policy, practice and people

As of: May 2019

Objective and activities

Despite increasing traction of the landscape approach, the implementation and evaluation of such approaches has proved elusive. This project will address this science-implementation gap and will formally operationalise the landscape approach through a broad constituency of partners and stakeholders who will assess the current conceptual frameworks and further develop methods and tools to put the approach into practice. Actors across multiple scales, with a focus on national policy and process in the target countries will benefit while simultaneously awareness of the value of biological diversity will be raised. The project will also promote options and build capacity for better integrating biodiversity in national sector policies and land use planning processes. An extensive program of outreach and engagement with policymakers at national levels but also globally will be conducted.
