Multi-functional Landscapes: What is the right approach?

Public. | 19 Jan 2018

Eric Patrick, adaptation specialist at the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), presented a new innovative pilot programme in a TED-like ‘Landscape Talk’ at the Global Landscapes Forum in Bonn in December.
Patrick began with an analysis of three past water-harvesting projects that seemed to have failed.

Fences to manage grazing were removed. Many of the planted trees died. Water catchment structures were not maintained.
