Secured Landscapes: Financial Modeling for Sustainable Use

Abstract

This report presents summary conclusions from the financial viability modeling exercise carried out by The Munden Project on three test site landscapes chosen by ICRAF as part of the Secured Landscape project. The purpose of this paper is to establish whether the sustainable land use projects being developed by ICRAF are potentially financially profitable, and how they compare to the practices currently in place. In each case we found that enhanced environmental impact and improved financial performance were compatible. However, our key conclusion is that moving beyond improved production practices, to consider the producers’ place in the market and value chain are necessary conditions of interventions with the potential to generate transformative change.
