Making landscapes sustainable

Eighty per cent of deforestation world-wide is linked to agriculture, which is also responsible for 30 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions world-wide. The landscape approach seeks to tackle forestry and agriculture issues together to achieve sustainable solutions for the use of landscapes that benefit everyone living in them. The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) has described ten principles characterising the landscape approach and addressing aspects ranging from continual learning and adaptive management through rights and responsibilities of different actors to resilience to strengthening stakeholder capacity.
