WASHINGTON (Landscape News) — The Landscape Investment and Finance Tool (LIFT), developed by EcoAgriculture Partners and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Netherlands helps investors analyze and develop collaborative business ideas and more.

Seth Shames, director of policy and markets at EcoAgriculture, described the key aspects of the tool, which has so far been tested in Honduras, Philippines and Tanzania, at the Global Landscapes Forum Investment Case Symposium in Washington.

The tool involves three key steps:

  • Assess financing needs of priority investments in the landscape
