From global complexity to local reality: Aligning implementation frameworks with Sustainable Development Goals and landscape approaches

From global complexity to local reality: Aligning implementation frameworks with Sustainable Development Goals and landscape approaches

Key messages

  • Many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) retain a sectorial focus; however, emphasis is placed on the need for integration across goals and targets.
  • Given that there are inherent synergies and trade-offs embedded throughout, applying sectorial approaches to achieving the SDGs will likely be ineffective.
  • Integrated landscape approaches offer significant potential as an implementing framework for addressing interlinked and conflicting challenges.
  • This brief identifies where the current set of goals would benefit from a landscape approach and to what degree, and presents key recommendations.
