Mobile-first Tools to Drive Results

Terraso will provide software technology to help people around the world achieve economic and ecological sustainability in their communities.

Over the next decade, Terraso will develop an open source technology platform to help local community leaders practice Integrated Landscape Management (ILM). Terraso will provide these leaders with powerful sustainability tools to advance multi-stakeholder partnerships, build a shared understanding of the challenges and features of a landscape, plan for action, and measure their success. In this decade, Terraso will help deliver on the promise of 1000 Landscapes for 1 Billion People.

Terraso has joined with a dozen co-design partners in landscapes across Latin America, Africa, Europe, Asia, North America, and the Pacific to develop the core features of the platform. Over the coming months we will work with these partners to prototype, test, and refine a variety of different tools for practicing ILM.

The first Terraso tools are expected by September 2021.
