Livelihoods and landscapes strategies

Description : Livelihoods and landscapes strategies are plans to deliver human and environmental needs in large areas of land. They have a special emphasis on improving livelihoods through the sustainable use of forests. Each strategy is different, but they all combine technical, local and organisational knowledge, and aim to be environmentally friendly, financially sustainable and socially equitable. In achieving these multiple aims, decisions for different uses in different parts of a landscape often result in trade-offs that are negotiated between multiple stakeholders. Data mapped based on locational descriptions on IUCN LLS website and assumed maximum spatial administrative extents of policy reach. Awaiting more specific information for sites in Brazil; Mali, Burkina-Faso; and Great Lakes regions
