Summary: A sentinel landscape is essentially a site or a network of sites, geographically (eg watershed) or issue (profitable bio-diverse approaches) bounded, in which a broad range of biophysical, social, economic and governance data are monitored, collected with consistent methods and interpreted over the long term. It is used to look at upward effects on planetary boundaries and downward effects of policy/practice on systems within the delineated landscape. The following topics will be covered; The tree linked continuum, Scale, empirical economics, innovative funding models, institutional memory and learning for aid effectiveness.

The aim of the talk is to stimulate high impact interdisciplinary research within OCTF.
