Description: IDH promotes a vision of landscapes where sustainable production of agro-commodities contributes to the protection and restoration of critical ecosystems, while enhancing communities’ livelihoods. This vision can’t be achieved by relying solely on public funding. A key question that many organizations are struggling with, is how to structure landscape initiatives so that they attract new sources of finance.
We are aiming to provide an answer to this question, through our Production, Protection, Inclusion approach we are piloting in 12 landscapes in 8 countries. This requires working at different scales (global, national, regional, and even village-level), and with various stakeholders: governments (national, regional, district), business, farmers and communities.
