Land Use Management Fact Sheet

This fact sheet describes how the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group is using scenario analysis to leverage all available opportunities to incorporate conservation into potential economic land-uses.

The Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group, through its Land Use Management task area, aims to develop a methodological approach to conservation planning based on scenario analysis, and guidelines for its application, to incorporate equitable and climate-smart alternatives into land use decisions for conservation. The methodology is being applied in four countries: 1) northern Republic of Congo – WCS, WRI, JGI; 2) eastern DRC – JGI, WRI, WCS; 3) western Tanzania – AWF, WRI, JGI, CI, WCS, and; 4) Madagascar – CI, WCS by replicating a landscape-level planning process with multi-sectoral stakeholders in order to better understand drivers of landscape change.
