GLF AMAZON DIGITAL CONFERENCE:
THE TIPPING POINT

The Tipping Point – Solutions from the Inside Out
The Amazon Biome is one of the most culturally- and biologically-diverse regions on Earth. It is home to more than 350 ethnic groups, 60% of which still remain largely isolated. It also harbors over 10% of the known biodiversity on this planet – including many endemic and endangered species.
The world’s mightiest tropical forest
In September 2021, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) will host the largest-ever global conference on the Amazon Biome and how we can preserve and restore the biological and cultural diversity of the world’s mightiest humid tropical forest.
The event will be held as 40 percent of the Amazon nears the tipping point of switching from canopy rainforest to savanna – a catastrophe for human well-being and planetary health, which can still be prevented if the world acts now.
Who should join?
GLF Amazon invites new and traditional knowledge and perspectives from key actors across the Amazon Biome. Scientists, policymakers, activists, youth, investors, restoration practitioners, community and Indigenous groups, organizations, media – all are welcome to join. We will leverage the latest evidence, innovation and business cases; convene partnerships; generate public support; and help build propositions to balance competing land-use demands between forestry, agriculture and restoration across the biome.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?
The COVID-19 crisis has caused the UN CBD to postpone the negotiations for its post-2020 global biodiversity framework. Yet, now is the time that the global community must step up and set a pathway for restoring the earth. Aligning with CBD’s envisioned pathways to transformative change and the 2020-2030 UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) advocates for a reorientation of our economic system, to reconcile the multiple interests, values and forms of resource use.
What will you do at GLF Amazon?
GLF Amazon will build on lessons learned from the creation and management of protected areas, Indigenous reserves and community forests. The territories within the Amazon require an integrated, transboundary and rights-based approach to catalyzing restoration and conservation efforts. Space must be created for Indigenous groups, local communities and institutions to connect to global processes and technologies, in order to combine new innovations and old practices, balance development and conservation, and embed inclusive, equitable and sustainable bioeconomies within Amazonian landscapes.
