Landscape Management Approaches to Integrate Water, Food, and Energy: Scaling up through the Landscapes for People, Food, and Nature Initiative

Side Event at the Nexus Conference // Landscape Management Approaches to Integrate Water, Food, and Energy: Scaling up through the Landscapes for People, Food, and Nature Initiative

Convened by EcoAgriculture Partners. This side event will introduce participants to the Landscapes for People, Food and Nature Initiative (LPFN). This global Initiative, led by nine Co-organizers (including civil society, research, intergovernmental and Government entities), advances and supports integrated approaches to landscape management, promoting pathways for sustainable development that simultaneously address the full set of needs from the rural land base, including climate-resilient production of food and fiber, watershed management, biodiversity conservation, bio-energy, terrestrial climate mitigation, and rural livelihoods.

To accomplish this, the Initiative is furthering the evidence base for integrated landscape approaches, assisting in the design and implementation of supportive policy frameworks, engaging business leaders, rethinking the finance needs and mechanisms in landscapes, and strengthening specific landscapes where integrated approaches are being applied.

The side event will include brief presentations on: the concept of integrated landscape management; results of continental reviews of hundreds of integrated landscape initiatives in Africa and Latin America; highlights from the Initiative's recent studies of business engagement in landscape initiatives and financing mechanisms, and plans to scale up integrated approaches through the LPFN. Participants will be encouraged to share their own experiences with landscape approaches, and ultimately identify how integrated approaches to landscape management can be used to advance the Nexus Strategy of developing interconnected solutions for achieving security for water, climate, and food.
