Strengthening land and seascape partnerships: what role for public policy?

Governments worldwide have stirred a recent wave of major policy initiatives to address the multiple urgent land and resource challenges facing our world: food and water insecurity, climate change, land degradation, biodiversity loss and more. 

Public, private and philanthropic funders have committed billions of dollars to meet these issues. But policymakers face complex challenges when it comes to translating policy into practical action on the ground for the myriad local communities and businesses who use, manage and steward those endangered resources. 

What type of policy support is needed to allow these partnerships to flourish? How do we strengthen public policy and program support? How do we move away from large public or private investment programs and champion locally organized and thoughtfully developed landscape partnerships?

This webinar, co-hosted with our partners at Evidensia and ISEAL Alliance, will explore what types of policy support landscape partnerships need to be effective and what that support looks like on a global, national and local scale. 

The conversation will be centered around the forthcoming white paper, Public Policy to Support Landscape and Seascape Partnerships, co-written by authors from EcoAgriculture Partners, Cornell University, Columbia University in the City of New York and the Gallop Initiative. 

You can preview the policy paper’s executive summary here.
