Although suboptimal lands are known either too dry (i.e acidic dryland, arid land), or too wet (i.e swamps, peatland), they hold a significant contribution to support food security especially in the provinces where these land types share a large distribution. This research aims to embed a framework to mainstream the sustainable use of suboptimal lands into the nation’s development agenda. We explored five key aspects: policies and regulations, incentives and financing mechanisms, land-use and territorial planning processes, and farmers’ development.
