Meeting Climate and Sustainable Development Goals through Integrated Landscape Strategies. New Policy Imperatives

This brief was produced by EcoAgriculture Partners and the FAO Liaison Office for North America following the presentations and discussion at the first in our newest event series for policymakers and conservation and development professionals in Washington, D.C. and beyond, “Towards Sustainable Landscapes.”

Within communities, land ownership and tenure is a critical part of the equation. Securing land tenure for local community actors is  essential to incentivize good stewardship and improvements in land management. An example of a massive restoration movement in Niger,where five to six million hectares were restored in 20 years due to tree ownership being returned from the government to farmers.

This policy briefing is a summary of the discussion during “Meeting Climate and Sustainable Development Goals through Integrated Landscape Strategies: The New Policy Imperative,” held February 12th, 2018 in Washington, DC, as part of the FAO-EcoAgriculture Partners high-level speaker series, Towards Sustainable Landscapes.
