Toward viable landscape governance systems: what works? uri icon


  • Communities seeking to govern their landscapes face a variety of challenges. Research on successful governance and management systems has failed to address these challenges at a landscape level. Now, a new LPFN knowledge product connects the dots of landscape governance
  • This working paper is built around the experiences of landscape actors, practitioners and the researchers who study and support them by bringing forth evidence about the challenges they face, their strategies and their successes working in diverse communities of practice that encompass multiple analogous management systems. These experiences are draw from the proceedings of a panel discussion on landscape governance that was conducted at the Global Landscape Forum (GLF), a side event of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC COP 19) held in Warsaw, Poland in November, 2013
