On the heels of the Nairobi International Forum, the discussions around integrated agricultural landscapes are still forefront on our minds. Co-Organizer Bioversity International’s Pablo Eyzaguirre extends the discourse to the web, talking about the potential for landscape approaches to reconcile the objectives of agricultural production and nature conservation. The video depicts how communities are finding innovative ways to grow food and make a living in some of the most difficult environmental conditions. It also explains how Bioversity International is contributing its knowledge gained from working with smallholder farmers around the world to the Landscape for People, Food and Nature Initiative, in an effort to move toward sustainable approaches in food systems.
About the Landscapes BlogThe Landscapes for People, Food and Nature Initiative is an international collaborative effort to support and scale-up the practice of whole landscape approaches to address the full set of needs from the rural land base – from sustainable, climate-resilient food and fiber production to biodiversity conservation to rural livelihoods. As part of this Initiative, the Landscapes Blog serves as a venue to learn about, share, and discuss topics related to landscape approaches. It seeks to engage leaders in the field, highlight research, present examples of landscape approaches in practice, and contribute to the discussions during major international events and policy processes.
