Landscape approach is an approach that spatially and participatorily strives to balance seemingly competing goals of protection and production.  It needs to be spatial that it needs to define the scope based on the key indicators that are the most strategic for the landscape ? ecologically, economically, and socially.  It also needs to be participatory as the approach needs to be planned, executed collaboratively, and monitored by all of the (direct, but sometimes also indirect) stakeholders.  Landscape approach is not an entirely new concept.  It is basically the practical approach of sustainable development that balances economic development, social cohesion, and environmental protection.  Landscape approach has gained momentum lately to achieve the multiple goals in managing regional development.

Following the multiple goals of sustainable landscape management, there are six programs in Landscape Indonesia, namely Protection and Conservation, Production and Supply Chain, Sustainable Infrastructure, Policy Research and Advisory, Sustainable Finance, and Knowledge Management and Outreach (also known as Landscape 360).  The last three are programs that cut across the first three in a matrix.  Projects are defined within the nexus of the programs, as below.
