Property Rights and Integrated Landscape Management

FAO Liaison Office for North America, Washington, D.C.

Exploring innovative approaches to land governance and property rights in integrated landscape management

As integrated landscape management gains momentum as a vehicle through which diverse conservation and sustainable development goals may be realized through multi-stakeholder collaboration in particular places, attention is turning to critical issues around land governance and property rights.

Questions arise regarding how to analyze, negotiate and harmonize rights of authority, control and use around land and resources in landscape mosaics where there is strong interaction and interdependencies among different land uses and land users.

  • What types of rights are needed, by whom, to stimulate investment in sustainable, inclusive management practices?
  • How can those rights be realized?
  • Might integrated landscape initiatives become incubators for property rights innovation?

This roundtable will explore insights and innovations in land governance and property rights that bear recognition and evaluation in advancing ILM. Conversation will contribute to synthesizing lessons from expanding experience, and defining pathways for action.
