Advancing Sustainable Land Management Through Partnerships

This report provides recommendations to the UNCCD as part of a series of reports on “Advancing Sustainable Land Management Through Partnerships.” Mining companies in Australia, Indonesia, and Zambia engage in SLM in 3 ways: by integrating SLM in their operations, product value chains, and CSR activities. While most mining companies recognize that access to finance is a major barrier to the growth and development of SLM enterprises in their ecosystem, they believe that offering financing support should be done by the banking and financial services industry. Only a few companies are receptive to directly participating in any innovative financing initiatives to address this gap. IIX believes that the challenges identified during the course of our research can be largely addressed through effective partnerships, policy support, and technical assistance for SLM enterprises.
