Learn and disseminate simultaneously. Previous GLF events have attracted tens of thousands of viewers to the livestream, and reached tens of millions of people via social media.
"There is a sheer, a huge global deficit today of positive incentives in the land use sector. We have a carrot crisis on our hands. And a positive benefit can be liberating a farmer from bureaucracy. Making it easier to access credit so it takes one month instead of eight."

"Merging the vision of sustainability – a proactive assignment – with the reactive practice to climate change needs to be a continuous exercise. And it is at the landscape level where theory becomes practice, where this integration happens. "

What’s on The Agenda?
This event will bring together a diverse, multi-stakeholder audience for a deep-dive into how climate action in the landscapes can boost economic growth. At a time of great uncertainty for our climate and the world itself, we gather leaders from Indigenous and local communties, financial institutions, businesses, youth groups, activists, women, policy makers and heads of state to take climate action in the landscape.
WAYS TO PARTICIPATE

You should come to discover how agribusiness can reach sustainable heights through success stories of agroforestry, sustainable grazing, shaded cocoa, coffee plantations, and more. The event will also build a conversation on how a rights based approach and its principles are a key component of climate action and risk mitigation for businesses and investors.
