Landscape Approach in Action, Impact Notes 04

Impact Notes 04

There is increasing agreement among international organizations that the “landscape approach” is the most effective method for incorporating conservation and human development dimensions into land use planning and the broader sustainable development agenda. It recognizes a landscape as more than a geographical territory. It is a multilayered concept containing a mosaic of land uses such as farms, forests, water, mining and inhabited areas where multiple stakeholders interact with each other and the environment. For more than 20 years, the International Model Forest Network (IMFN) has been implementing landscape-level, participatory approaches to the sustainable management of natural resources. This occasional series of Impact Notes offers a graphical summary of recent news and resources from the IMFN.
