Building a Collaborative Vision for Landscape Action

Challenge Details

Issues are Interconnected

Many efforts to manage landscapes in an integrated fashion begin in response to a particular problem, purpose or focus such as conserving tropical rainforest, reducing poverty, promoting agroforestry, or diversifying food crop production.

Collaboration is Needed

People responsible for managing single-focus activities often quickly learn that tight linkages between livelihoods, sustainable production, and ecosystem management require attention to all of these dimensions if the effort is to be successful in the long term. They also need to engage partners and stakeholders at the larger landscape scale in order to succeed.

Building Links and Limiting Conflicts

A landscape perspective offers a framework to help local leaders be deliberate about building useful linkages and limiting potential conflict among people and activities that can contribute to multi-sector, multi-stakeholder management of the landscape.
