About this program

The Landscape-based Approach is increasingly recognized as an effective mean to address challenges in food security, ecosystem conservation, and climate change. This e-course explains key features of landscape approach, governance and showcases. It presents useful tools in design and implementation of landscape interventions. It requires 4-5 hours of online learning. “‘Landscape 101’ shows that large –scale transformational change across an entire landscape is possible. Understanding and implementing critical steps, such as giving long-term land use rights to smallholders, penning livestock, or letting trees regenerate can lead to amazing results in just a decade. It’s an exciting time to replicate the enormous success we had for example on China’s Loess Plateau, where we were able to increase food security and lift farmers out of poverty by giving ecosystems a break.” — Juergen Voegele, Senior Director, Agriculture, World Bank “What would it take to transform rural areas into resilient, sustainable and economically vibrant communities? It requires a landscape approach bringing multisectoral solutions. I am confident that this e-learning course will inspire teams to – #thinklandscape.” — Julia Bucknall, Director, Environment & Natural Resources, World Bank “Climate Change impacts our society, ecosystem and economic prosperity. This e-course illustrates how landscape-based approach can help address climate change challenges through building resilience in landscapes and communities.” — James Dominic Edward Close, Director, Climate Change, World Bank
