Planning & Monitoring | WWF

Landscape conservation sits within a complex matrix of conservation actions that all contribute to one goal: sustainable management at a very large scale. Achieving this goal requires not just the efforts of WWF, but collaboration with many other partners.

Unless we comprehensively address the threats that are eroding fragile landscapes, it is unlikely we can stem the tide of unsustainable development that is degrading many parts of the Greater Mekong region.

This is why we aim to promote, facilitate, and build capacity for:

What we are doing

  • Showing the full value of ecosystem services and how they can help to build resilience against the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events
  • Reviewing conservation and development plans from a climate change perspective
  • Demonstrating the application of ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation in each WWF priority landscape
  • Developing indicators and a monitoring system to track our work
  • Building the capacity of our staff and others to use spatial planning tools, models, and scenario-based thinking in development and land-use planning
  • Working with governments to integrate climate change and conservation considerations into development plans
  • Linking buyers of certified products with producers (e.g. timber, NTFPs, and fisheries)
  • Strengthening partnerships with key like-minded institutions including donors, other NGOs, and researchers.
