Summary

The African Landscapes Dialogues held in 2014, 2017 and 2019 provide a robust platform for experience and knowledge sharing among the various ILM initiatives in the region. The November 2019 Dialogue held in Arusha, Tanzania, brought together leaders of dozens of integrated landscape partnerships across Africa to share experiences and innovations, and to jointly update the African Landscapes Action Plan.

A key theme was the role of ILM in biodiversity and wildlife conservation. This policy brief synthesizes key points from those discussions. Section 2 presents the African perspective on biodiversity problems and the need for integrated landscape management to solve them; section 3 draws from the rich African experience with ILM to propose concrete recommendations for the post-2020 CBD Agenda.
