Now, more than ever, is the time to increase ambition and seize opportunities for a ‘quantum’ shift in the scale of funding for tropical forest protection and research. This session, organized by the Green Gigaton Challenge and partners, will showcase concrete examples of the radical inclusivity and collaboration needed to achieve tropical forest protection at scale. Together, speakers from Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLC) organizations, NGOs and public-private tropical forest protection initiatives (including LEAF and CONSERV) will discuss key ingredients for successful, equitable and inclusive forest partnerships, as well as how opportunities generated by the Challenge can be leveraged to advance financial flows to forests in IPLC-managed lands.
