In 2019, the EU launched the 5-year Landscapes For Our Future programme, which now supports 22 ILM projects, spanning 19 countries and 3 sub-regions across the Global South. Offering solutions to context-specific land use challenges, Landscape For Our Future will advance goals relating to:

  1. food and nutrition security, job creation and resilient and sustainable agriculture;
  2. climate change mitigation and adaptation; and
  3. biodiversity and land/forest ecosystems conservation, restoration and sustainable use.

Supported projects encompass a wide range of thematic areas, ranging from biodiversity and landscape conservation to climate smart agriculture and sustainable value chain development.
