Policy Brief: Mainstreaming Incentive Systems for Integrated Landscape Management: Lessons from Asia

A new Policy Brief from the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), host of the IPSI Secretariat, provides guidance for policymakers interested in incentive systems to encourage SEPLS management. The brief, Mainstreaming Incentive Systems for Integrated Landscape Management: Lessons from Asia, is written by UNU-IAS experts Beria Leimona, Shamik Chakraborty, and William Dunbar. It investigates incorporation of multiple knowledge systems, removal of policy barriers, and encouragement of local collective action in terms of incentive systems for SEPLS.
