Lesson 2: Integrated Landscapes Management We’ve already learned that the causes of deforestation mostly come from outside of the forest. It only makes sense, then, for restoration efforts to include more than the forester and, rather to include a combination of disciplines and sectors. For example, a committee of foresters, farmers, urban planners all co-creating a management plan over a certain area. One tool for getting everyone on the same page and coordinating efforts is the landscape approach. The landscape approach captures the idea of managing land sustainably (social, economic, environmental) across sectors and communities. It provides a framework for addressing competing interests such as forestry, agriculture, mining, biodiversity and/or the environment.
