Scaling regenerative and restorative agricultural practices in Pakistan to benefit people, nature and economy.

Smallholder livelihoods, natural resources, and agri-food systems are at risk due to the threat of climate change. In a particular region, farmers depend on the interconnected well-being of land, water and biodiversity. This symbiotic relationship between crop production and the natural environment is crucial for their sustenance. 

It is essential to envision agricultural ecosystems that prioritize the protection and conservation of the environment, while simultaneously enhancing the resilience of smallholders and the local economy against the impacts of climate change. 


The Pakistan Regenerative Production Landscape Collaborative is an innovative jurisdictional model to foster agricultural ecosystems that conserve and enhance natural resources and build community resilience whilst enabling businesses to source responsibly.

What is the landscape approach?

The landscape approach connects local actors for multi-stakeholder partnerships to take collective actions on challenges by coordinating solutions and moving together with the same vision for climate, community resilience, biodiversity, food, water security, land use, and regenerative economies.
The Pakistan Regenerative Production Landscape Collaborative is part of the global forum of ‘1000 Landscapes for 1 Billion People (1000L)’, which is a radical collaboration of change agents working together to accelerate landscape efforts.

Key outcomes of the collaborative:

1. Producers are encourages to grow their crops using organic and regenerative principles.

2. Engagement of public and private stakeholders to build strong multi-stakeholder governance for the programme.

3. Enhance access for sustainable produce from the region.

4. Access to finance for producers and value chain for sustainable and inclusive service delivery.

5. Commitment of all stakeholders towards ensuring a living income for the producers and protecting rights of farmers and communities (with a focus on gender).

6. Ecosystem benefits such as reduction in emissions, improvement in soil health, better water management practices, and biodiversity friendly agriculture.

7. Support to Farmer Producer Organizations and agri-entrepreneurs in the development of viable business models that provide quality inputs and services to smallholder farmers. 

Where will we work?
By 2028, our efforts will encompass jurisdictional landscape regions in Punjab, including Jhang and Sahiwal, and Balochistan, namely Barkhan and Lasbela.
