Building an East Africa learning landscapes network with the Landscapes for People, Food and Nature Initiative
Since 2012, the CEWG has been working with the Landscapes for People, Food and Nature (LPFN) Initiative to improve the knowledge and practice of integrated landscape management. An integral part of the initiative has been engaging with landscape leaders on the ground. In East Africa, in particular, the LPFN has brought together leaders from more than 10 landscapes in Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia in national and regional level events to exchange knowledge, learning about new tools, and strengthen multi-stakeholder platforms in their landscapes. A Regional Learning Landscapes Knowledge Exchange will build on previous online knowledge exchange events to bring together representatives from each of the learning landscapes in workshop in Nairobi in June 2015. Our hope is to work with the LPFN to foster the establishment of similar networks in Central and South America in the coming year.
