Integrated landscape approaches feature prominently in recent UN conventions as promoted strategies to address inter-connected social, political, economic and environmental challenges in tropical frontier landscapes. However, evidence of their effectiveness remains poorly researched, reported and understood. This session will address this gap through a book launch that showcases COLANDS initiatives that are implementing integrated landscape approaches in Ghana, Zambia, and Indonesia. Speakers will share their experiences of conceptualizing, designing and implementing landscape approaches, including: why biodiversity needs to be integrated within landscape approaches, how better governance can be achieved, what evaluation approaches are appropriate and how to bridge sectorial, disciplinary and knowledge system divides.
