Resilient Landscapes started as an idea in December 2018 and it is now evolving into a project. From January 2020 it is operating as a project under CIFOR-ICRAF in Bonn. Resilient Landscapes has three purposes:
1. To support better connection and synergy amongst a myriad of landscape and land-use initiatives and actors.
2. To better connect the 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, partnering and integrating work of CIFOR-ICRAF and others across the Research-Development-Policy-Investment spectrum.
The main focus of Resilient Landscapes is on 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.
