Description

The Spatial Planning and Monitoring Guide: Maps to Link People with their Landscapes, developed by EcoAgriculture Partners and Cornell University for TerrAfrica, is designed to stimulate the use of maps in cross- sectoral collaborations to locate, design and monitor interventions in rural landscapes. The guide presents eight steps to guide key stakeholders through a spatially explicit landscape planning process aimed at integrating goals for agricultural production, biodiversity conservation and livelihood security.

The Spatial Planning and Monitoring Guide uses best available maps to facilitate this process by allowing stakeholders to specifically indicate areas where improved landscape benefits should be planned and monitored. Here the use of a wide range of maps (such as maps on water flows, suitable agricultural soils, vegetation cover and population) supports well-informed planning for placed-based interventions, of which the desired impact often depends on the spatial characteristics of a larger area.

The guide provides guidance on selecting, accessing and tailoring maps that form the crucial basis of this spatially explicit multi-stakeholder planning process. The use of these maps is subsequently described in eight steps of a planning and monitoring cycle.
