A holistic approach to sustainable production, forest protection and social inclusion

IDH brings together businesses, governments, farmers, communities and civil society to build sustainable governance models across tropical forest regions, or landscapes. Through our three-pronged PPI approach, we create areas where agricultural products are grown sustainably (Production), forests and natural resources are safeguarded (Protection), and communities thrive (Inclusion). Scroll down to find out about our approach to building resilient landscapes, and download our Landscape Information Brief.

We use the PPI approach in 12 landscapes in 8 countries
