Building business partnerships for resilient landscapes
What is LENs?
LENs links management and investment in landscapes to the long-term needs of business and society. It does this by helping businesses to work together to influence the quality and performance of the landscapes in which they operate.
Business interests can range from resilient crop production, flood risk, carrying capacity of water catchments, management of carbon or biodiversity, to health and quality of life for their workforce.
LENs mobilises those business interests by building a series of place-based chains of transactions –‘collaborative value chains’ –which enable groups of businesses to co-procure landscape outcomes from land-based organisations that can make things happen on the ground.
