Global Landscapes Forum
Global Landscapes Forum

The first Global Landscapes Forum opened on Saturday morning with a Youth Forum on the future of sustainable landscapes. Following the formal opening plenary session in the afternoon, participants convened in 16 technical and networking sessions to discuss specific issues relating to the forum’s theme of “Shaping the climate and development agenda for forests and agriculture.” The sessions covered, inter alia: landscape-scale planning for REDD+; rethinking governance strategies for integrated landscape management; certifying ecosystem services; climate-smart agriculture; integrated watershed management for rural development, resilience and empowerment; impact of climate change on farmers in Africa; bridging the gap between science, policy and action; achieving synergies between adaptation and mitigation approaches for policy makers and land managers; and financial strategies for integrated landscape management.

A Gender Café also took place during the day to highlight the role of gender in farming, forestry and other land uses.
