Description

This Landscape Roundtable is convened by FAO and EcoAgriculture Partners to reflect upon the achievements and lessons learned from the Landscapes for People, Food and Nature (LPFN) initiative, which began in 2012 and officially closes this year. The LPFN initiative has been an international collaboration of knowledge sharing, dialogue and action to support integrated landscape management in order to achieve three simultaneous goals: improved food production, ecosystem conservation and sustainable livelihoods. More than 70 partner organizations from North and South America, Europe, Africa, Latin America and Asia have contributed their resources and considerable expertise as part of LPFN to promote and strengthen landscape management around the world.

During the Roundtable, distinguished panelists representing the core partners of LPFN will reflect on the initiative and share their vision of where to go from here to further advance sustainable landscapes that fully meet the Global Goals.

Everyone working to advance integrated landscape management is invited to join this Roundtable.
