LIMA, Peru—Paula Caballero, Senior Director of Environment and Natural Resources Global Practice at the World Bank, says the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are currently under development should be seen through the prism of landscapes.
“That means that we don’t just look at the obvious targets that focus on terrestrial ecosystems, or forests, or water or oceans, but that we take those targets that might not be so obvious – like women’s participation for example – and put a landscape lens on them,” she said on the sidelines of the Global Landscapes Forum in Lima, Peru.
“There are a whole range of issues that are outside of the ‘usual suspect’ targets that provide critical entry points for having landscapes be what I call a sort of organising principle of the SDGs.”
