Current efforts to reverse declines in ecosystem health while improving a growing population’s well-being are not advancing at the pace or scale needed. To succeed, we need to think bigger and collaborate.
LandScale is a new approach to drive improvements in sustainability at scales beyond a single community, farm, or project. It provides an impartial, holistic, and globally recognized system for assessing the cumulative impact of activities within landscapes dominated by natural resource-based industries.
NGOs, the private sector, donors, and governments working at the landscape level can use LandScale to track trends, make effective decisions, and credibly communicate impact. By making reliable information about landscape performance widely available, LandScale helps link financial and market incentives to improvements in sustainability at landscape scale.
