GLRPPR Sector Resource: Reducing Risk: Landscape Approaches to Sustainable Sourcing

Title:
Reducing Risk: Landscape Approaches to Sustainable Sourcing

Abstract:
Businesses facing climate change, water shortages, or community relations issues can improve their bottom line while also protecting biodiversity and improving rural livelihoods by using a "whole landscape" approach to land management. This is the major finding of a new report from The Landscapes for People, Food and Nature Initiative, a collaboration of nine of the world's leading anti-hunger, conservation and development organizations. This report highlights how some visionary companies that rely upon coffee, cocoa, water, and other resources in the developing world are going beyond piecemeal sustainability projects to take a more holistic approach.
