Transforming Landscapes

TFT is working to create resilient, thriving ecosystems and communities in key, highly biodiverse landscapes that are under threat from expanding agriculture.

We do this by working with a wide range of stakeholders in a participatory process to address shared challenges, to meet overlapping or even opposing interests, and to find a cooperative way forward.

This often means working across different commodity supply chains to provide incentives both for sustainable economic growth and for protecting key ecosystems. The involvement of local communities, civil society, smallholding farmers, industry, and government ensures that outcomes are robust, implementable and responsive to local needs.

TFT is piloting land-use planning processes in three of the world’s most biodiverse countries – Indonesia, Brazil and Peru.
