Vision and Planning

Visioning and planning are collaborative efforts to lay out a desired future and design a long-term strategy or roadmap for implementing ILM. Stakeholders negotiate and agree on ways to work together to address problems and their root causes, and to capture unrealized opportunities in the landscape. A key role for LP facilitators is to advance negotiations, informed by the agreed evidence base and analysis of challenges and opportunities, and ensuring that all stakeholders are heard despite power differences. 

Efforts to build a collaborative vision for landscape action are exemplified in Central Lombok, Indonesia and the Altiplano landscape, Spain.

Working collaboratively to develop the action plan involves practical discussions and negotiations on how to align, coordinate and integrate the proposed actions within stakeholders’ existing mandates, work programs and business plans.
