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 Inclusive and Sustainable Territories and Landscapes Platform is a space for content and knowledge exchange on integrated and holistic approaches to sustainable development. 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.

An innovative element of the Inclusive and Sustainable Territories and Landscapes Platform is the systematization of territorial development and landscape experiences, which will be progressively expanded with the participation of countries.
