  • The Cornell Ecoagriculture Working Group (EWG) in concert with Ecoagriculture Partners, an international nongovernmental organization, and a steering committee of 20 science, conservation, and rural development organizations has created the Landscape Measures Resource Center (LMRC) with support from four donors. The online platform is enabling agricultural producers and technical service providers from diverse sectors and disciplines around the world to share ideas and information about how to use measurement for managing natural resources to improve profitability and livelihood security for farmers while safeguarding biodiversity and ecosystem services at landscape scale.
