Integrated land-use initiatives challenge practitioners to look beyond traditional sectoral development projects and engage with the complexity of entire landscapes to tackle some of the biggest challenges of our time: poverty, climate change, biodiversity loss, and deforestation, among others. Reflecting the promise of this approach, the number of initiatives has grown substantially over the last decade or so, leading to a wide range of approaches and a large amount of innovation. However, there is limited consensus on best practice in integrated land use.

To fill these gaps, the BioCarbon Fund Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (ISFL) has taken stock of best practices and lessons learned from more than 150 initiatives implemented globally in a new report, “Toward a Holistic Approach to Sustainable Development: A Guide to Integrated Land-Use Initiatives” and accompanying “Resource and Case Studies Booklet.”

This event, marking the launch of the report, seeks to open this conversation by convening practitioners, academics, and other experts around the world to share insights and discuss the way forward. The launch will take place over two virtual sessions, each focusing on four of the eight themes identified in the report.

What we will cover:

– Why these initiatives represent promising solutions to local and global challenges
– How integrated land-use initiatives have been implemented around the world, including key challenges practitioners have faced and lessons learned
– In what ways each of the eight themes are key to the success of these initiatives
– The future of integrated land use
