Over the past two decades, ‘integrative landscape approaches’ (ILA) have gained increasing prominence in the search for solutions to reconcile conservation and development trade-offs, and the term has evolved to encompass a wide variety of interpretations. Generally, ILA describe a management approach to reconciling conservation and development through interventions in different components of a landscape matrix, some of which are managed for conservation and others toward development goals. Simultaneously, ILA improve livelihoods and reduce pressures on biodiversity and environmental resources.Despite increasing traction of the landscape approaches, the implementation, and more importantly, evaluation of such approaches on the ground have proved elusive. COLANDS will specifically address this science-implementation gap and will formally operationalise the landscape approach. A broad constituency of partners and stakeholders in three countries (Burkina Faso, Indonesia and Zambia) will assess conceptual frameworks and further develop methods and tools to put the approach into practice.
