Transforming Development Planning at a Landscape-scale
Mar 16, 2016
Over the past decade, we’ve seen community-company development conflicts increase, often over issues like water access and impacts. We also know that if we are to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) we’ll need new planning models that take account of cumulative impacts. In response to these needs and challenges, the Global Agenda Council on the Future of Mining and Metals (along with the Nature Conservancy and RESOLVE) has published Blueprints for a Greener Footprint. We are pitching landscape-scale planning as a tool to help achieve the SDGs. Please share it widely in your networks.
