Register: Global Landscapes Forum
Description: Multifunctional landscapes and land uses are at the heart of the intertwined challenges associated with climate and development. Global Landscapes Forums, held alongside the UN climate negotiations, create a platform for positioning landscapes in the new international agreements on climate and sustainable development.
The events bring thousands of negotiators, world leaders, researchers, civil society leaders, business leaders, practitioners and policymakers in agriculture, forestry and development, funding organizations, and media, making it the largest, most influential event outside the UNFCCC COP. Forum participants will benefit from joining the interactive process of seeking combined solutions to the complex challenges common to everyone on the planet.
The 2014 Global Landscapes Forum will explore the role of sustainable landscapes in the new climate and development agenda along four themes:
- The implementation of integrated landscapes approaches
- Forests, agriculture, mountains and land use in the new climate regime
- Landscapes and the green economy
- Landscapes and the post-2015 development agenda
