On December 11, Commonland, Aidenvironment, IDH, Wageningen University Research and Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation, part of WUR/Beagle are organizing a Knowledge Event focusing on landscape restoration. Restoring our degraded landscapes is essential to meet global goals and provide a sustainable future. But prevailing systemic barriers prevent efforts reaching the necessary scale. What are these barriers and what can we do to achieve the impact that is so urgently needed?
The knowledge session aims to create a deeper understanding of the different approaches to scale-up landscape restoration, gain insight in approaches applied on the ground and identify ways forward in the cases discussed. Participants will investigate the dynamics of scaling and how scaling should take place. Scaling will be explored from different angles, from scaling-out, to scaling-up and what scaling means for space, money and people and policy.
The event will be in an interactive open setting, and will bring the knowledge available in the network together around landscape restoration cases members are working on.
Therefore participants are warmly invited to bring their landscape restoration cases. Cases should be submitted submit by November 30 to , making a short summary including:
- is the case about (goals, geography, key target groups, general approach)
- do you intent to scale up to make sustainable impact (e.g.: hectares restored land? Farmer numbers? Stakeholders? Knowledge? Finance? Leadership?)
- is the scale you are aiming at?
are you scaling up? What is your approach, what are the tools you use?
key scaling question do you encounter in scaling up the impact of landscape restoration
