From climate change and biodiversity loss, to pollution and food insecurity, land- and sea-scape degradation is intrinsically linked to the world’s biggest problems. To solve this, we need policy and financial frameworks that support practical, integrated, and systemic solutions applied at the landscape scale.
While landscape restoration often sits within the “environment” policy silo, at the landscape scale it can generate substantial benefits to business, energy, climate, finance, and social stakeholders. A holistic landscape restoration approach is about green infrastructure; it enables the multi-level governance integration that is crucial for efficient and cohesive policymaking and implementation.
That’s why we work with policymakers to help them to integrate holistic landscape restoration into policy and regulatory frameworks, as one approach to achieve their environmental, economic, social and climate goals.
As we work with all landscape stakeholders – from farmers and scientists, to indigenous people, policymakers, conservationists, and business professionals – we can support participatory policymaking processes. Our landscapes can also provide best practice examples for policymakers to draw upon when revising regulatory and policy frameworks.
By supporting policymakers with information, best practice guidance, and access to a global network of people working on landscape restoration, we aim to support governments to meet their 2050 climate and biodiversity goals.
