Landscape approach refers to taking both a geographical and socio-economic approach to managing land, water and forest resources that form the foundation for meeting the goals of food security and inclusive green growth.

It is about connecting protected areas, forest, woodlands, agro-silvo-pastoral lands, croplands, irrigated agricultural lands for the multiple wins of: Increased productivity, Increased adaptation, Increased GHG mitigation, Improved biodiversity, Increased water production, Increased peace and security.

With a landscape approach… the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
