1. Recommendation:

Recommendations are made to UNDP to reinforce the value from this and similar investments, namely:  To more aggressively demonstrate the value of its forthcoming projects in development and poverty reduction terms – by for example, reflecting the number of beneficiaries and measurable contribution to poverty reduction and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved in the headline indicators[1][1] A reviewer noted limited resources to “conduct an exercise that is valuable to determine the actual impacts”.

3. Recommendation:

Recommendations are made to UNDP to reinforce the value from this and similar investments, namely:  Since landscape approaches are so critical to achieving the SDGs, and are likely to continue gaining in popularity as a result, UNDP should consider planning a support programme and more actively communicating the benefits of landscape initiatives that brings together research and practitioners, and are likely to deliver more sustainable development benefits and/or create and generate co-benefits on other SDG targets (such as reducing inequality, women’s empowerment, etc.).
