Landscape approach to Governance, Planning and Finance

In the context of the Landscapes for People, Food and Nature Initiative and its visit to the Netherlands a seminar is organised on Landscape approach to Governance, Planning and Finance in Wageningen.

Integrated landscape management is increasingly recognised as a means to simultaneously achieve sustainable food production, ecosystem conservation, and sustainable livelihoods at the landscape level. This is why the seminar aims to contribute to the further sharing of knowledge, dialogue and action to support integrated landscape management worldwide.

The seminar will take place in Wageningen Impulse, which is an inspiring environment for people from different backgrounds to informally meet. We will have three Wageningen scholars to introduce us to the topics of landscape governance, spatial planning and landscape finance. After these presentations, we will split into groups, to further dive into the three topics, share practical experiences, and exchange innovative tools.

The outcomes of the seminar will provide us with a ‘state-of-the-art’ knowledge on landscape governance, planning and finance; help us identify the major knowledge gaps, and collectively draft a knowledge agenda for landscape approaches and their application to governance, planning and finance across the globe.
