The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) is designed to produce and disseminate knowledge and accelerate action to build more resilient, climate friendly, diverse, equitable and productive landscapes. Landscape approaches embrace compromise among competing social, environmental, political and economic demands to produce multiple benefits from limited resources. The GLF uses this approach around five broad themes: restoration; financing; rights; measuring progress; and food and livelihoods.
The science-led Forum convenes diverse stakeholders, including representatives from civil society and the private sector, policy makers, community members, farmers, indigenous groups and international organizations, to share knowledge and best practices to produce collaborative contributions to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its SDGs, the New York Declaration on Forests, the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and the Paris Agreement on climate change, as well as regional efforts such as the African Agenda 2063.
With support from the German Government, GLF 2018 will convene in Bonn, Germany.
