Resilient Landscapes started as an idea in December 2018 and it is now evolving into a project. In January 2020, it began operating as a project under CIFOR–ICRAF in Bonn.
Resilient Landscapes has three purposes:
1. To support better connection and synergy among landscape and land-use initiatives and actors.
2. To better connect CGIAR through CIFOR–ICRAF to new partners and constituencies.
3. To attract new revenue streams to landscape-level work with private sector (tree crop value chains, forestry, land restoration) and private investors (impact investors, blended finance, nature-based solutions).
Resilient Landscapes is an inclusive and cross-sectoral project. It partners and integrates the work of CIFOR–ICRAF and others across the research–development–policy–investment spectrum.
The main foci of Resilient Landscapes tropical and developing country challenges, but many aspects are global in nature, reach and implication. The project covers the full spectrum of activities of research, fund creation, development, training, advice, policy, social empowerment, investment, advocacy, convening and impact delivery.
