The Landscape Monitoring Accelerator is a peer-to-peer capacity development program for policy-makers and government officials looking to improve or design monitoring systems to track the performance and impacts of restoration and land use policies. Through workshops and individualized mentoring with world-class experts, participants identify challenges and co-create solutions to shift and measure the effectiveness of their restoration programs. By collaborating with mentors and other cohort members, participants will design systems to help them better understand whether their policies are supporting smallholder farmers, protecting endangered species, sequestering carbon and more.

The Monitoring Accelerator supports policies focused on the implementation of country NDCs for the land use, land-use change, forestry (LULUCF) and agriculture sectors. It brings together leading practitioners, data scientists, economists and experts in their fields to share their expertise on monitoring, data management and policy/incentive programs, including carbon taxes, compensations and payments for ecosystem services, to support policy innovators’ needs. The program supports policy-makers by providing access to analyses, mentors and networks that enhance policy innovators’ abilities to advocate for cost-effective policies that support restoration on forests and agricultural lands, as well as land use planning in their respective countries.
