Focusing on empowering local people


Landcare International – empowering people & integrating actions

Landcare empowers local people to collectively lead take action on local problems, and integrates those actions in addressing broader issues.

Threats to the global environment through land degradation, loss of biodiversity and climate change are becoming more apparent with each year. At the same time, population is growing and food insecurity throughout much of the world is increasing. To address these challenges we need holistic and interdisciplinary approaches towards land management, such as Landcare.
