Highlights for Sunday, 17 November 2013
Global Landscapes Forum
Global Landscapes Forum

Discussions at the Global Landscapes Forum continued on Sunday, 17 November, at the University of Warsaw in Poland, with an opening plenary session in the morning, followed by four parallel sub-plenaries on: investing in sustainable landscapes in forests and on farms; landscapes policy and governance for forestry, agriculture and other land uses; synergies between adapting to and mitigating climate change in forest and agricultural landscapes; and building resilient landscapes for food security and sustainable livelihoods.

In the afternoon, following a high-level panel discussion on the future of the landscapes approach from 2015 and beyond, participants convened in 12 parallel discussion sessions. During the closing plenary in the evening, a draft outcome statement from the GLF discussions was handed over to UNFCCC COP 19 negotiators for their consideration.

The Gender Café continued for a second day, showcasing publications and videos and informal conversations around gender and landscape management.
