Integrated Landscape Management
Many of the social and environmental problems faced by industrial societies, including environmental degradation, biodiversity loss and climate change, will require an integrated approach to assessment and management.
In order to support and enhance a community of practice dedicated to these efforts, IISD worked on a number of activities to help decision-makers in adopting integrated landscape magnagement (ILM) practice. The overall objectives of the network are to:
- Improve the state of readiness of land-use decision-makers to undertake integrated land-use planning.
- Expand awareness and use of state-of-the-art tools, techniques and approaches for integrated landscape management.
- Support decision-making processes in a regional context, with specific consideration of combined or interactive effects of development activities originating from multiple sectors.
This project focused on gathering and analyzing information and resources from and for the existing community of practice comprising the pilot areas, through a combination of original research, including participatory scenario development and policy-mapping, lessons-learned studies and capacity-building support for the pilot projects
