SLM at landscape/watershed level

The objectives of activities at watershed level should be directed towards:

• Development of land and water resources management plans (at sub-national level) 
- Generate dialogue between upstream land users and downstream water users
- Enhanced understanding of water resources dynamics and land-water linkages
• Contractual implementation of natural resources management activities to ensure efficient and sustainable use of resources and to the extent possible the attainment of benefits by all stakeholders

Potential approaches and lessons learned for SLM at watershed level

• Participatory diagnostic and watershed planning
• PES schemes, if applicable, or other contractual approaches
• Land management plans
