Resilient Landscapes delivers tailor-made solutions to its partners comprising a wide range of products, services and privileged networks powered by CIFOR-ICRAF. Rather than offer its expertise in one-off disjointed pieces a la carte, Resilient Landscapes offers a comprehensive 360-degree turnkey solution that envisions a deeply-involved and equitable partnership over a substantial time period to ensure maximum impact on the ground. It does this in collaboration with different public, private and civil society actors through contractual or partnership agreements across multiple scales (global, regional, local).
Pre-project feasibility assesments, bespoke analyses - ESG performance metrics (e.g. Agricultural Landscapes Performance System - ALPS)
Project design - project implementation - project management - project monitoring & evaluation - project co-financing (via blended finance vehicles between the public and private sectors)
Establishing and convening valuable partnerships and networks - connecting actors all along the landscape and commodity value chains by leveraging CIFOR-ICRAF's privileged long-term relationships across the globe
