Commitments to action
EcoAgriculture Partners is recognized internationally as integrated landscape management (ILM) thought leader and field-builder, working at the intersection of policy, research, and implementation.
In the context of the Coalition for food system transformation through agroecology, we will continue working on training policymakers on landscape planning and policy as it relates to food and agriculture. We will support landscape-level transformation by working with subnational and national governments and stakeholders in developing the technical frameworks and integrated policies to implement agroecological approaches that support rural livelihoods.
We will continue working in the follow-up to the UNFSS on supporting interested stakeholders to meet the challenges and opportunities related to the Governance Action Area that was co-led by Sara Scherr, our president, and CEO, with a focus on Territorial Governance (Solution Cluster 6.1.3)
EcoAg will develop tools and innovations for landscape policies, planning, and action, strengthening landscape partnerships, training landscape leaders, and mobilizing business and finance to support ILM as it relates to food systems transformation. EcoAg has already provided training, advisory services, and analysis for more than 50 landscape partnerships in over 20 countries and will continue working with landscape partnerships globally.
EcoAg will serve as a catalyst promoting integrated landscape management approaches that support food systems transformation. EcoAg is unique in working with equal dedication and independence across all sectors and committed to integrated and locally generated solutions. Through its longstanding work in facilitating multi-actor, multi-sector collaboration, EcoAg has become widely respected as a neutral and energetic convener, for example, the Landscapes for People, Food and Nature Initiative from 2011-2020, joined by eight co-organizers and more than 70 partner organizations. EcoAg now serves as convener of the 1000 Landscapes for 1 Billion People initiative (www.landscapes.global) which seeks to strengthen landscape partnerships around the world and will enhance food systems focus among hundreds of landscape partnerships.
