African growth corridors: a powerful example of the landscape approach
How can we facilitate economic growth that is inclusive, climate-resilient and sustainable? In the African growth corridors, the landscape approach offers a solution. These corridors in for example Tanzania and Mozambique are regions that are being prioritized for rapid economic growth.
Many stakeholders are involved in this process: rural communities and farmers who depend on water resources in the landscape, businesses who are investing in the region, and government. By including them in a landscape-wide multi-stakeholder dialogue, we work towards inclusive landscape management that offers solutions for the sustainability of water and ecosystems.

IUCN NL’s activities in the African growth corridors are part of SUSTAIN-Africa. Led by IUCN, the SUSTAIN alliance consists of IUCN NL, African Wildlife Foundation and SNV and is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
