From commitment to action – developing strategies to operationalize integrated landscape approaches

Global Landscapes Forum, Marrakech


This interactive session will identify the current impediments to implementing landscape approaches and begin to develop the solutions for overcoming these impediments. Panelists from a spectrum of backgrounds from research and policy will be joined by those in attendance in attempting to move beyond normative suggestions of “we need to implement, we need more investment, we need to better integrate policy and practice”. Rather, we focus on how we can better align the theory of landscape approaches with the reality of applying the approach on the ground, i.e. using examples of integrated landscape approaches to discuss how we can implement, how we should monitor progress and how we can better incentivize the multiple sectors operating within rural landscapes to formulate more holistic solutions to sustainably managing land and achieving globally conceived commitments.

Key questions addressed:

  1. Integration for all? How to incentivize multi-sector integration to address climate and development objectives?
  2. How to realize optimal landscape governance strategies and manage adaptive learning processes?
  3. Process, not project – How to maintain long–term commitment to landscape approaches?
