We’re facing a number of complex and interrelated problems such as rising food prices, economic downturn, climate change, and increased competition on the use of natural resources. 

Integrated landscape approaches have the power to help us solve these problems. They offer new insights and opportunities for sustainable development, but demand new skills and knowledge.

To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), diverse landscape stakeholders need to find a common ground and learn to understand plural and complex landscape issues, processes and perspectives. 

Join this programme to understand what changes and skills are needed to make these changes and what your role in this should be. Thinking from a spatial perspective, this program focuses on the multi-functionality and cross-sector nature of landscapes.

In this Professional Certificate Programme you will learn about three major elements in landscape thinking:

  • Integrated Landscape Finance
  • Landscape Governance
  • Landscape Leadership

In doing so, you will learn that the application of landscape approaches to address complex developmental and environmental challenges requires a shift in mind-set, perspective and skillset.

The courses in this programme have been developed to enhance your ability to think beyond the sector and in a more integrated and transformative manner. The courses will equip you with the skills and tools needed to transform your landscapes.

The Sustainable and Inclusive Landscapes programme is developed and delivered by a network of globally active partners under the momentum and umbrella of the Global Landscapes Forum.

  • If you finish this programme, you’ll become part of the largest science-led platform on sustainable land use; you’ll join a community of over 25,000 Global Landscape Forum participants.
  • International and multilateral organisations such as the World Bank, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Environment Programme are all engaging in landscape approaches in their global programmes.
