New Brief - Integrated Landscape Management: The means of Implementation for the SDGs

Wednesday, 30 September, 2015 - 10:06
A new paradigm for natural resource management is needed if we are to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. What is now widely known as Integrated Landscape Management (ILM), inclusive of all spatially-based, inclusive, participatory, and multi-objective land and resource management systems, is that paradigm.
Built on multi-objective management, inter-sectoral coordination, community empowerment, and transboundary and regional cooperation, ILM provides a powerful toolkit for implementing the SDGs across all ecotypes and land and sea use systems, from urban to rural and mountainous to coastal.

The Landscapes for People, Food and Nature Initiative, together with experts from the World Resources Institute, UNEP, Bioversity International, World Agroforestry Centre, CIFOR, The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, African Model Forest Network, Millennium Institute, CATIE, and GIZ, have released a short brief presenting the ILM approach for consideration as the means to achieve the SDGs.
