People’s Landscape Approach (PLA)

CSRC along with Oxfam in Nepal, LIBIRD, NEEDS and ICIMOD developed the People’s Landscape Approach (PLA) Framework. The framework provides new opportunities to conceptualize the complex relations between humans and nature, calling for more integrated forms of conservation and natural resources management, with the aim to reconcile conservation and development objectives within a single space. In the fiscal year 2022-2023, CSRC as a partner has been contributing to pilot, the PLA framework in 2 watersheds (the landscape of the Mahakali River basin in the Kanchanpur and Dadeldhura districts of Nepal. The implementing partners have already invested in these watersheds through the Transboundary Rivers of South Asia (TROSA) project, Strengthening Community Preparedness, Rapid Response and Recovery in Nepal (SCOP-R3) project, and Multi-Use System in Dadeldhra (MUSD) project.
