Project

Initiative for Sustainable Landscapes Cooperation Agreement

Introduction

We are partnering with IDH, the Initiative for Sustainable Landscapes Cooperation Agreement (ISLA) and key JDE suppliers in the Central Highlands of Vietnam a landscape program that addresses two key issues: extreme climate events, particularly recurring droughts and agrochemical overuse. Through these interventions we have a positive impact on sustainable agricultural production, rural livelihoods, and economic development. ISLA is an initiative convening coalitions of public & private stakeholders to jointly formulate strategies for and invest in, sustainable land and water management in a specific landscape.

The Project

Several field level projects are incorporated under the ISLA program and contribute towards achieving the below objectives.

  • Sustainable water use by the agricultural and hydropower sectors, contributing to sustainable water levels in surface and ground water in the landscape.
  • Reducing deforestation and promoting reforestation and agroforestry.
  • Preventing and mitigating land degradation, soil erosion and pollution.
  • Preventing the use of hazardous agrochemicals and chemicals discharge into soil and water.
  • Improved climate change resilience of farms.
