Sustainable Development Goal 15 formulates an ambitious vision for the landscapes of the future: a land degradation neutral world in 2030. In this event we will discuss why Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) is not only another target but a framework by which we can leverage existing commitments to sustainably manage our working landscapes. A key challenge for the implementation of LDN and FLR commitments is land governance. Panelists and audience will explore how the governance of tenure, access, and use of land and soils is critical for the success or failure of all restoration initiatives.

Organizations are welcome and encourage to host and facilitate side meeting before and during the GLF event, and then bring their results and recommendations to the Forum. A GLF secretariat will be on hand to identify and reserve appropriate Bonn venues. Webinars, engaging social media campaigns, competitions and pre-event discussions will generate momentum and interest in key issue areas to ensure that the GLF accelerates long-term action for sustainable landscapes.
