Rights, results, and rewards: Managing production landscapes sustainably

Saal Beethoven

Promising lessons from the field on how to sustainably manage production landscapes

This interactive session will explore how sustainable approaches to managing production landscapes are showing promising results for communities, ecosystems and economic growth in several countries. Investment in coordination across government agencies, consistent policies, knowledge and tools, technical capacity building, project financing and private sector collaboration are key ingredients for success on the ground.

Delegates to the session will discuss how clear rights, benefits and incentives for local communities, and gender-informed approaches, are proving to be fundamental for impactful and lasting results. Case studies with World Bank experiences in this regard, including Ghana, Zambia, and from Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR), will be reviewed.
