Seeking to harness the power of the financial sector, a growing multi-stakeholder movement involved in the Global Landscapes Forum have come up with a Roadmap towards landscapes investments at scale that will guide actions from 2015 onwards.

How can we increase food security? By supporting smallholder agriculture and rural enterprises within healthy, sustainable and climate-smart landscapes — says AIRCA, a new alliance of international research and development institutes that has joined the 2015 Forum as an Implementing Partner.

There seems to be a consensus emerging on the value of landscape approaches, a CIFOR scientist writes in his report from Durban — but what do we need to do next? It is a time for urgent action, some say, whereas others argue that returns will ensue only by playing the long game.
