In line with IUCN’s work plan 2017-2020 and especially the IUCN Business and Biodiversity program, the IUCN CEM Thematic Group ‘Business and Ecosystem Management’ (TG B&EM) is established. The group embraces the transformation of business values, highlighting the opportunities and benefits of a more sustainable approach. The Thematic Group will focus on the question ‘how to create long-term business commitment on the ground for ecosystem management’.
Building on our experiences with business and the 4 returns framework we have learned that creating a clear language and a framework that is understood by business is the key to successful implementation on the ground.
The MOOC Business4landscapes offers an introduction to landscape degradation and landscape restoration from both the perspective of natural science and from an economics and business administration perspective. Please read the concept of activity plan ‘From profit maximisation to multiple returns’.
