What is Landscape Partnership Asia?

Landscape Partnership Asia (LPA) is a multi-stakeholder platform that will implement performance-based investments in the restoration of Asian drylands and drought-prone areas through networks of ‘engagement landscapes’ deploying evidence-based techniques. These investments will mitigate the climate crisis, build the resilience of forests, rangelands, and agricultural landscapes, and improve livelihoods. This initiative will link to other restoration initiatives — such as the Bonn Challenge, the UN Decade of Ecosystems Restoration and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ Asia-Pacific Forest Landscape Restoration — to create synergies.

Our Ambition
Contribute to national and international targets on the restoration of forests, agricultural drylands, and drought-prone areas in Central, East, South, and Southeast Asia with initial 10 million hectares brought under integrated dryland and drought management by 2032.
