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).
