This presentation, given by Micah Ingalls of TABI at the Greater Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy, introduced the landscape approach that is being piloted in Northern Laos. Landscape-based approaches for integrating multiple social and environmental objectives have become increasingly-attractive to a wide range of development and conservation-related stakeholders. Despite this appeal, a number of problems persist relating to the ways in which integrated landscape approaches are conceptualized and operationalized in practice and the policy-space available to support operationalization. Recently, conceptual and operational approaches have been put forward to address these gaps, but remain limited by a lack of empirical application in the Mekong region.
