About

Increasing global complexities and interconnectedness offer both opportunities and challenges to our collective ability to deal with climate change, food insecurity, resource depletion and degradation and the many conflicts that arise due to scarcity. The solutions to many of these issues need both global attention, but also local action. 

Join this course to kick-start your efforts to unite stakeholders and design governance structures, processes and partnerships that capitalize on strengths and balance and mitigate threats. 

The programme

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and building healthy and productive landscapes can only happen with effective stakeholder engagement. Landscape governance is therefore key to balance and manage the many trade-offs and interdependencies that happen across sectors and scales in and around landscapes.

Taking this course requires you to look at a landscape and its governance from a new perspective. With the landscape as the place, you will think spatially and explore transboundary governance that flows from the natural landscape and overcomes static, traditional administrative levels and barriers. 

By taking this Landscape Governance - Collaborating Across Sectors and Scales Certificate from EdX in partnership with Wageningen University and Research - WageningenX you’ll also be challenged to assess the roles of policy and institutions in a highly interactive fashion. Moving to the global level, you’ll be exposed to and learn from the many international frameworks, each with a vital role to play. 

This Landscape Governance - Collaborating Across Sectors and Scales Certificate is part of Sustainable and Inclusive Landscapes Professional Certificate Program.
