Governing frontier landscapes: Insights from the Global Landscapes Forum 2014

GLF-briefing note Eng

Frontier landscapes are defined as fairly remote areas where rates of forest clearance, land use change and social and economic fluidity are high. They include established populations as well as newcomers, resulting in a very diverse mix of actors, ranging from large-scale agri-business and mining operations geared to international commodity markets, to low-income and subsistence farmers. The convergence of these starkly different groups within landscapes is fundamentally changing the development trajectory in a given area.
