The Landscapes for People, Food and Nature Initiative (LPFN)

Dr. Sara Scherr
Chair of Landscapes for People, Food and Nature

Landscapes for People, Food and Nature is an international collaborative initiative of knowledge sharing, dialogue and action to support integrated landscape management to achieve three simultaneous goals: improved food production, ecosystem conservation, and sustainable livelihoods. More than 70 partner organizations from North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia are contributing their resources and expertise to strengthen landscape management around the world.

By addressing challenges at a landscape level, practitioners identify connections between agricultural production, livelihoods, and the environment and harness synergies in a more powerful way. The Initiative supports the uptake of integrated landscape management by sharing and evaluating knowledge, experience and challenges; showcasing and assessing tools and methods for implementation; building capacity of innovators and institutions; and advancing an ambitious agenda through research, advocacy, and partnerships.
