(Sarah's audio quality isn't great)
Yes we hear you
maybe everybody needs to mute
(it does sound like a mike problem)
not so good
I think you should try using a headphone?
Maybe that would help.
We can’t hear you
Dr. Kakha NADIRADZE
Hello to everyone, Greetings and best wishes from Georgia!
Hello Sarah, Your microphone is malfunctioning.
cant hear you
I’m sorry but it’s very hard to understand any of what Sara is saying
not much better
Sara we cannot understand you
I think the problem is Sara
voice is broken up
not any better
Opps, Sara’s microphone
actually now it is working
when you lean in closer it is fine. it is when you lean back it is a problem
We still can’t hear
try switching of the video
(my sense is that for some reason it degrades over time, so short comments are ok, but long periods of talking causes a problem)
It could work better if you only use audio and no video

This is Gabriel Laizer from FAO North America. Because of the number of attendees, we will only be taking questions via CHAT toolbox. Please send your questions, direct to any of the panelists and let us know the organization you represent.
thank you very much Thomas
Question: For those who recognize the value of the approaches and hope to shift the projects we work with in this direction, what are the best handholding resources to help project apply the approaches to the work being done. Resources that are accessible to new entrants into the field?
A reminder to all of the people who joined the webinar recently--- We will indeed be circulating to everyone the a brief report from the webinar, an edited version of the chat discussion, and a recording. You will be able to oshare these with your colleagues.

I have a comment and a question; here in Peru the territorial perspective (we call it ordenamiento territorial) has become a goal to be followed by state agencies for development and sustainability; however, the main problem we got is that to develop an "ordenamiento territorial plan" we first need to do quite a series of studies (mainly the ecological-economical zoning studies) which take several years to be done, and this, compounded with the need of doing participatory meetings, means that actually no ordenamiento territorial plans have actually been made. So the question is, How can we shorten the times of studies to reach the goal of territorial focused development? In Peru this "ordenamiento territorial" has already legislation in place to be followed, based on methodologies from Colombia and Brasil.
There seems to be very big differences between Latin America where rural territorial development approaches emerged and elsewhere in the world - e.g. there are many West African landscape approaches but they are more market driven, focused on cocoa...Any comments on this please?

A good overview on both conceptual basics and practical experiences with territorial approaches can be found on the OECD webites of the territorial development unit as well as the OECD Development Centre DEV
Kameron Burt, USDA: In terms of utilizing landscape/territorial approaches to meeting environmental and socio-economic goals, how do we deal with the issue of administering the commons and resolving contradicting incentives between individual rural entrepreneurs and social groups within the targeted geographic areas? Is there a chance for land confiscations and political conflict in persuit of social goals? Even at the inter-communal level.
Question: From Blake Ratner, Collaborating for Resilience (CoRe): What key challenges and examples of success have you seen between landscape approaches and national-level policy dialogue, particularly regarding land tenure and rights for smallholders and historically marginalized groups?
You may want to have a look at the following links and tools, I will refer to them in my contribution http://www.fao.org/3/a-i3516e.pdf ; https://fledgeresearch.ca/ ; https://www.kpu.ca/sites/default/files/ISFS/SWBC%20Project-Future%20of%20our%20Food%20System%20Report_web%20version.pdf
just sharing one more resource for tools etc: http://www.fao.org/in-action/territorios-inteligentes/recursos/publicaciones/en/
Can you give examples of landscape and/or territorial approaches that have gone to scale? What has been the key element of success?
Here you can have a look at the TP4D paper mentioned by Thomas https://collaboratif.cirad.fr/alfresco/s/d/workspace/SpacesStore/6daa60e1-d89e-4a59-9bfd-ff5f66a93130/TP4D_vENG.pdf
Is there any example of a successful inter-territorial (intercountry) landscape project done where we can draw good learnings from?
What's the best 1 week training (personal/not just a series of documents) that would provide a project manager enough to go off and start to implement the approach within the project they manage?
The Voluntary Guidelines Vera was referring to http://www.fao.org/3/i2801e/i2801e.pdf
tenure is a major constraints or opportunity to the landscape approach, as ILC we are supporting national multi stakeholder platforms MSP that are now evolving into local MSP for land governance, national and local are talking to each other
what about relaunching the idea of land access and agrarian reform for local systems as a measure of response to the current crisis for resilient food systems and environmental restauration?
could we hear more about the approach in light of covid — why the approach is particularly important now plus challenges ( as one person in chat mentioned, challenges when mobility limited and ‘digital divide’. Patrick started to address this
Could someone please provide a link to the models that were cited for Colombia and Guatemala and the contacts to those two examples that we could be in touch with?

Farming in the arid Koup region: A truly South African example of LandCareThe LandCare model has offered practical and vital solutions to a group of landowners farming in the arid central Karoo region, in the Western Cape of South Africa. These farmers sought to address threats around predation (with farmers losing more than half their lambs to predators every year), and the drought. The LandCare model – to plan holistically and strategically, at an area-wide scale (as opposed to farm scale), to together seek ways to protect natural resources and secure a viable farming business, caught their attention. And once this group of farmers realised the need to design, develop and implement the plan from the ground-up, they officially launched the Koup Area Wide Planning Project. This project became known as a “gold standard” for community based natural resource management, and today serves as an example for any farming community around the world.
An example here in Washington DC is a participatory story approach to developing a ‘sustainable development roadmap’ for two of the most underserved neighborhoods in the city. Check out the website at https://www.fivepillarsdc.org/i-introduction/http-localhost8888-wordpress-i-introduction/
I'm also very interested in Vera's question. I am new to the term territorial approach and come from the sustainable landscape approach that are dealing with people, their space and the livelihood activity . I think there is a lot more information on these market-driven landscape approaches in the Sust Landscape management approach. There are probably tools there that are relevant for Territorial approach too?
Cam you provide a succinct definition of the territorial approach, and how it differs from current approaches in landscape management and landscape restoration that say they embrace a co-management approach

Is some wish, here are the references to a collective book - in both French and English - which serve as a basis for the Living Territories Conference ()

Building on the TP4D White Paper, a “territory” is understood as a space of governance for human activities, at a scale that sits between the local community/village/town and the province/nation-state. It is a space where interventions often not but should be conceived and implemented; where development strategies are anchored in territorial/landscape/ecosystem assets and qualities; where multiple levels of spatial organisation connecting local, regional, national and international goals are grounded; and where multi-sectoral coordination and multi-stakeholder governance mechanisms take place. A territory is influenced by a community of actors exploring opportunities and dealing with common challenges by defining appropriate actions and policies.
This s an excellent book--also available in English.

always love florence’s frankness! great points esp at end of last comment...
Hello! this is Victoria Gvozdeva from Managing of Territorial Development educational program at MARCH architectural school & Ranepa University of Russia. Thank you FAO and partners much for this anticipated session! Question: will we have some out-of-quarantine and de-centralisation issues in the near future? Because during pandemic situation it seems to straighten up the centralization trend.
Participants may be interested in a 'primer' published in 2015 - The Little Sustainable Landscapes Book, that includes definitions, a framework and 20 case examples of landscape partnerships.
I would like to know if there is a recent/up to date review on how Ecosystem Services has been applied to the territorial perspectives
Annalisa Mauro, ILC, has mentioned the collaboration on multi-stakeholder platforms for land governance in 29+ countries. Details here: https://www.landcoalition.org/en/explore/our-work/multi-stakeholder-platforms/
Also useful resources from DFID's LEGEND programme on land initiatives with relevance to landscapes: https://landportal.org/partners/legend/outputs/dfid-land-portfolio
thank you Blake!
One of the early Guidance Notes from our joint work with ILC on multi-stakeholder platforms for land governance addresses strategies and approaches to policy engagement. Download here: https://www.landcoalition.org/en/explore/our-work/multi-stakeholder-platforms/community-practice/
Thank you for that definition Thomas
Ashebir Solomon Bekele
I think the approach is different in the way it takes in to account all actors and systems. Most approaches leave out some or significant part of the actors or systems out.
both approaches, if implemented properly should take into account all stakeholders

I wrote a book called Soil and water conservation. A premise for sustainable development. It can be a tool for Spanish speaker countries. It develop in detail land use planning at farm/plot level which a Call Tactical planning and at regional/territorial level which I call strategic. At the regional level it is focused on resolve land use conflicts. It is open access, hope you see it as an useful tool. Thanks for the webinar. The link of the book: https://www.dropbox.com/s/eqq4xfke8d683z8/Libro%20CSA-Una%20premisa%20del%20desarrollo%20sustentable.pdf?dl=0
thank you all
You can contact me with any additional resources at firstname.lastname@example.org
Post-CoVid funding will flow. We should support pragmatically the necessary reorientation of food systems at territorial level
Thx, Sara, Remy et al....was an interesting event!
Thank you! Very informative.
