ABSTRACT

 

Generally, frameworks for environmental interventions are focused only on the fight against climate change, the conservation of biological diversity, and the fight against desertification, land degradation, and drought, but not as a whole with indicators which could guide the attainment of better results for projects in diverse countries and organizations. A review of existing literature shows that there are no integrated frameworks for interventions regarding sustainable land management projects. The purpose of the present study is to propose an integrated framework for interventions of sustainable land management in countries with a national, regional, and local approach to contributing to their competitiveness and organizations.
The proposed integrated framework for interventions contains objectives and indicators for managing the fight against climate change, the conservation of biological diversity, and the fight against desertification, land degradation, and drought, with a holistic approach. As a result, the Sustainable Land Management’s Integrated Framework for Interventions (SLMIFI) is presented. SLMIFI could guide relevant governmental and non-governmental organizations in their efforts to develop and manage environmental projects with a focus on sustainable land management. Finally, the inclusion of the sustainable land management of countries as a pillar in the construction of competitiveness indexes is recommended, together with various managerial suggestions and guidelines for future research.


Keywords: Sustainable land management, competitiveness, SLMIFI, climate change, biological diversity, desertification and drought.
