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 13 landscapes in 9 countries

Turning pledges into action

We look back at many thought-provoking dialogues during the International Sustainability Week of the Amsterdam Declaration Partnership. To drive action on deforestation-free commodities and sustainable markets, we welcomed during a series of events, partners from all over the world, from producers to governments to private sector and NGOs working with us to detail the plan for the coming years focused on action and real impact. One of the many highlights was discussing the 9 draft actions together to reach impact at scale on deforestation-free commodities. We will continue to work on these actions the coming months until we have clear and agreed-on actions to carry out.
