Criteria, Indicators & Tools for Integrated Landscape Management

Landscape Learning Series: Session #2

Watch the webinar recording

Our Landscape Learning webinar on 6 July provided an opportunity to present the results of a global review of criteria, indicators and tools, and showcase two examples.

Integrated Landscape Management (ILM) has been successfully implemented in various contexts to harmonize conflicting land management goals such as development and conservation. Despite its application in past decades, there is no systematic framework (with generally applicable criteria and indicators) to guide the implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of ILM projects across diverse landscapes and contexts. 

A global review was therefore conducted to develop such a framework under the Landscapes For Our Future (LFF) programme. This learning event presented the results of this review and delved into two examples of monitoring tools applied in ILM projects.
