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.
