Landscapes for people, food and nature

I was invited to write a blog piece on our riparian reserve research for the Landscapes for Food, People and Nature Initiative.

The initiative fosters cross-sectoral dialogue, learning and action to improve food sustainability and biodiversity conservation. The partners involved include UNEP, the World Resources Institute, The World Agroforestry Centre, Conservation International and several others. Their aim is “to understand and support integrated agricultural landscape approaches to simultaneously meet goals for food production, ecosystem health and human wellbeing.” They are carrying out a global review of knowledge on integrated sustainable land management, through which they put people in touch with a wider range of beneficiaries of ecosystem services and help establish new institutions to manage rural and urban landscapes. 

My post “Assessing sustainable palm oil production with the help of dung beetles” has just gone out on their website.
