This must leverage knowledge, inclusive participation, and adaptive planning in order to maintain ecosystem diversity in landscapes without eroding the ecosystem services and benefits that they provide. This policy brief recommends that: • Both traditional and scientific knowledge must be mobilized at the landscape level, through inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches. • Up-scaling of activities should be supported by inclusive participation, including by political actors, for better leverage of human capital and effective collaboration. • Replication of successful sustainable production approaches needs to be adaptive, context- sensitive, and based on a long-term perspective supported by continuous monitoring.
