Health Landscapes for Resilient Livelihoods: from the project approach to integrated programming at IFAD

    Livelihoods of smallholders are anchored geographically within shared landscapes and economically within even larger systems.  Yet the project approach to agricultural development still, of necessity, draws narrow boundaries in terms of space (farmers field), time (project life), and economic ”sector” (rural vs urban).  Recently however IFAD, with partners, has been first piloting then rolling out large integrated approach programs, the logic and examples from which will be highlighted in this presentation.  More details will also be provided on an exciting ongoing project in Kenya which employs this approach.

    Organizations are welcome and encourage to host and facilitate side meeting before and during the GLF event, and then bring their results and recommendations to the Forum. A GLF secretariat will be on hand to identify and reserve appropriate Bonn venues. Webinars, engaging social media campaigns, competitions and pre-event discussions will generate momentum and interest in key issue areas to ensure that the GLF accelerates long-term action for sustainable landscapes.

    The GLF will have a small secretariat in Bonn, Germany to coordinate all of the above, operated by CIFOR.
