Building on the engaging discussion forum 12 at GLF Nairobi, “Engaging the Private Sector in Integrated Landscape Approaches: Cases from the African Landscapes Action Plan”, this digital summit will provide bring additional examples from new geographies, new voices, and new insights to this important topic.
Panelists will react to the key messages of the GLF Nairobi discussion forum:
- Value chain approaches not sufficient to address sustainability issues, we need integrated landscape approaches.
- Landscape management can be a de-risking strategy for financing development.
- Private sector players and financial institutions can become interested in investing in the landscape if you make a clear business case. Most of them, however, don’t speak the language of landscape yet.
Engaging the private sector is a key action area within the African Landscapes Action Plan (ALAP), which, like AFR100, contributes to the African Resilient Landscapes Initiative (ARLI). Our digital summit panelists will provide insight from both the landscape partnership convener perspective, and from the private sector already engaged in landscape management initiatives.
