This interactive session explored how sustainable approaches to managing production landscapes are showing promising results for communities, ecosystems and economic growth in several countries. Investment in coordination across government agencies, consistent policies, knowledge and tools, technical capacity building, project financing and private sector collaboration are key ingredients for success on the ground.
Delegates discussed how clear rights, benefits and incentives for local communities, and gender-informed approaches, are proving to be fundamental for impactful and lasting results. Case studies with World Bank experiences in this regard, including Ghana, Zambia, and from Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR) were reviewed.
