In almost four years of existence, IUCN's Livelihoods and Landscape Strategy (LLS) has changed the lives of poor communities around the world by restoring forest services, improving livelihoods and creating means of income. Jamie Gordon, Knowledge Management Officer for LLS, describes a few of those success stories and explains how LLS experience has been adopted as a model by governments and donor organizations for new strategies.
