A Guide to Integrated Land Use Initiatives: Resource and Case Studies Booklet
This booklet is a companion to Toward a Holistic Approach to Sustainable Development: A Guide to Integrated Land Use Initiatives, produced by the BioCarbon Fund (BioCF) Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (ISFL). The full Guide takes stock of lessons learned, documents best practices from a range of integrated land use initiatives, facilitates knowledge sharing, and provides a handbook for practitioners who are looking to implement this approach. Analysis of these initiatives is offered through the lens of eight themes identified as being most significant to the success of these initiatives: multistakeholder engagement (MSE); environmental focus; economic focus; boundary setting; land tenure; financing strategies; monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL); and cross-sectoral coordination.
This booklet provides a practitioner-focused toolkit, offering resources and tools related to each theme and presenting a compendium of case studies to illustrate best practices. This resource is meant to show how integrated land-use initiatives have worked in practice and provide practitioners with the tools necessary to adapt the lessons and approaches presented in the Guide to the specific needs of the people and landscapes with which they work.
