International: Landscapes for People, Food and Nature to write paper on integrated landscape approaches

Landscapes for People, Food and Nature, a global coalition of agriculture, environment and development organisations, is leading an initiative to write a white paper on Integrated Landscape Approaches as a means of implementation for the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The premise of the white paper is that land and water resources must be collectively managed at a landscape scale if food production, ecosystem health and human wellbeing are to be achieved in tandem. By managing the underpinning natural resource base and ecosystem services in a coordinated way, the needs of people, communities and governments can be met in the short and long term.
