Transboundary Landscapes Regional Programme: Outlook and synergy-building for 2020 and beyond

The transboundary landscape approach builds on principles of integrated social-ecological systems with conservation and development perspectives at a transboundary level. ICIMOD’s Transboundary Landscapes (TBL) Regional Programme is currently being implemented with strategic partners in four landscapes – Hindu Kush Karakoram Pamir Landscape (HKPL), Kailash Sacred Landscape (KSL), Kangchenjunga Landscape (KL), and the Far-Eastern Himalaya – along with implementation of the REDD+ Himalaya programme in four Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) countries.

The five initiatives within TBL are at different phases of implementation. Collectively, these initiatives provide a unique opportunity to advance the transboundary landscape narrative for achieving global targets including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and Aichi Targets, and the Paris Agreement, among others.

TBL has almost a decade of experience in conservation and transboundary initiatives in the HKH. In line with ICIMOD’s Medium-Term Action Plan (MTAP) IV (2018–2022), TBL is implemented with the objective of achieving improved transboundary cooperation through regional policies and strategic partnerships leading to the sustenance of mountain ecosystem services and equitable livelihood benefits at the regional landscape level.

This workshop aims to bring TBL’s initiatives together in one platform to reflect on past achievements and lessons learned so that synergies are identified and an outlook for 2020+ is prepared. Key strategic and implementing partners of TBL initiatives will participate in the workshop.

Workshop objectives

Combining team building exercises and group discussions, the workshop will aim to:

  1. Prepare an outlook 2020+ for TBL.
  2. Finalize activities for 2020 with anticipated results at the respective initiative levels.
  3. Stimulate the TBL team for 2020+.
