Background

ICIMOD has been promoting the landscape approach to address the shared conservation and development challenges that transcend national boundaries. Our Landscape Initiative for the Far Eastern Himalaya (HI-LIFE) has served as a platform for regional cooperation by supporting joint research, facilitating policy dialogue, and promoting the sharing of information, innovative approaches, and best practices.

2022 is a crucial year for global biodiversity conservation and sustainable development, as the CBD CoP15 conference with the theme, “Ecological Civilization: Building a Shared Future for All Life on Earth”, will endorse the Post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, chart out the roadmap, and set new targets for the next decade. Sharing knowledge and information will be the first step towards this ‘shared future’.
