The Little Sustainable Landscapes Book aims to share best practices for integrated landscape management, especially in areas where economic development and environmental sustainability compete. The book outlines the key elements that form the basis of integrated landscape management and presents the tools that can be used for its implementation.
Helping farmers in Honduras
Solidaridad funded the translation of the Little Book through the Sustainable Landscapes initiative (Paisajes Sostenible – PaSos) in Zona Litoral del Norte in Honduras. This initiative builds on the successful multi-stakeholder platform for Sustainable Palm Oil in Honduras (PASH) and aims to engage sector players at landscape level. The ambition of PaSos is to create conditions for jurisdictional certification of the palm oil production landscapes in the future, and drive integrated landscape management practices that bring multiple benefits for multiple stakeholders.
Supported by partners
The Little Sustainable Landscapes Book was first published in 2015 as a result of close collaboration between Global Canopy Programme (GCP), EcoAgriculture Partners, the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
With the support of funding from Solidaridad Central America, Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE) and the Norwegian Embassy in Costa Rica, the publication is now available in Spanish. Solidaridad is actively promoting this booklet among partners to further inspire them with examples of sustainable landscape management in practice.
