Plenary: Action on the ground

New York

From a start-up entrepreneur taking on Germany’s second-largest energy provider to save a forest to a UNCCD expert who knows all the ins and outs of some of the world’s largest climate and development funds, this plenary brings together an array of speakers who sit at the intersection of different sectors and landscapes, and are using their positions to hold others accountable for the wellbeing of nature and the people who depend on it.

Their words will help lay out a path forward to create immediate, lasting change; and where the way forward is not yet clear, speakers will attempt to identify areas where research, policy and cross-border unity can lead to organized action to protect and restore landscapes that also know no bounds.
