Conventional policy approaches that assume landscapes can have one priority objective while ‘trading-off’ other objectives are no longer viable in much of the world.

Fortunately, policymakers have a large set of tools at their disposal to create and sustain integrated landscape management as a means of achieving sustainable landscapes. Whether your mandate is the Sustainable Development Goals, mainstreaming biodiversity, improving water access, developing clean energy sources, adapting to or mitigating climate change in agriculture, building resilient rural economies or another land or resource-management issue, these guidelines will help you activate the power of integrated landscape management to achieve your goals.

Announcing a new publication: Public Policy Guidelines for Integrated Landscape Management!

Northern Australia has the largest in-tact network of tropical savannas and unregulated waterways in the world, but this could change in the very near future. 

A great case from Kimberly to Cape Initiative, a nonprofit that brings multiple groups of people together to develop Northern Australia, while protecting the landscape's ecological, cultural and social integrity. http://bit.ly/1VOxel2
