Over the past few years, the growing debate on how "territorial development" and "landscape" approaches can tackle poverty, food insecurity, climate change, and biodiversity loss has become well known. It is now more pragmatic to understand how these approaches materialize and operationalize in the field.

The Smart Territories Platform is a space for content and knowledge exchange. Through this platform, FAO aims to promote mutual learning between countries and strengthen capacities for the design, implementation and evaluation of public policies and tools at all levels.
