About the Landscape Enterprise Networks (LENs)
To address the joint challenges of climate change and the decline of our natural ecosystems, it is crucial that we take swift, collaborative action on the ground, to restore our landscapes, engaging the local communities to help build ownership, resilience and prosperity.
In this session we focus on three key areas:
- Some of the key challenges in scaling community centric landscape restoration and how LENs can help overcome these.
- Perspectives from key organizations across business, farming, regulatory and civil society, explaining the drivers and benefits to engaging in LENs programmes.
- Key insights and learnings drawn from LENs programmes, on multifunctional outcomes, scaling and replication.
The session concludes with an exciting announcement regarding the next steps in the LENs journey.
