Central America is the tropical region most severely affected by climate change worldwide. Soil degradation, forest loss and monocultures make it even more vulnerable to climate change. Regional efforts to harmonise climate protection activities and biodiversity goals have so far been unsuccessful. The project will create carbon sinks through forest landscape restoration (FLR) and establish these across the entire region. FLR is seen here as an approach that treats the entire landscape as a whole.

CI (Conservation International) and CATIE (Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza, Costa Rica) propose to assess vulnerability to climate change in ecosystems whose resources support smallholder farming communities in Central America and to develop and test strategies for Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) to help highly vulnerable farming communities cope with climate change.
LANDac is a partnership between Dutch organizations active in the field of land governance with the aim to optimize the link between land governance, sustainable development and poverty alleviation by generating, analyzing, synthesizing and disseminating knowledge. Some of its activities include PhD programmes, short-term research in collaboration with Southern partners, an annual Summer School on Land Governance, organization of meetings and lectures and providing a platform for a wider range of stakeholders involved in and interested in land governance in the Netherlands.
The project is a regional program aimed at preserving agrobiodiversity in traditional agricultural production systems of indigenous and peasant communities.
The programme supports national institutions responsible for spatial/regional development and planning to develop improved frameworks, strategies and instruments for sustainable spatial development.
