A “landscape approach” is a term used to describe collaborative initiatives in specific places that span multiple sectors and go beyond the scale of individual farms, forest management units and protected areas. Essentially, it means coherent intervention at a landscape scale to secure food, fibre and energy production, improvements in social welfare, water security and ecosystem conservation.
Applying a landscape approach to prevent large-scale deforestation is ultimately about encouraging land-use choices that retain forests for multiple purposes and optimize the productive capacity of the surrounding landscape. This can combine protection of critical sites, locally controlled economic activities tailored to meet community aspirations, voluntary efforts to supply deforestation-free commodities, responsible forest management within production forests, REDD+ and other measures to secure payments for environmental services.
It is very important to maintain constant dialogue between stakeholders involved in the exploitation of natural resources.
