GLF Biodiversity Digital Conference: One World - One Health
Integrated land- and seascape approaches are effective instruments for mainstreaming biodiversity in the post-2020 era. They can help to address the major drivers of biodiversity loss, and offer cross-sectoral policy instruments to combine nature conservation, ecological restoration and sustainable land and water use at a larger scale.
With global health pandemics and climate change creating a world of unknowns, we still have the power to step up to restore the earth. Get an inside look at the latest pathways to transformative change envisioned by the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the 2020-2030 UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. See how the world’s leading organizations use landscapes to solve today’s most pressing biodiversity challenges. Experience the GLF Biodiversity Digital Conference online, from wherever you are. Join discussions with biodiversity experts, set up virtual meetings with co-participants and immerse yourself in a learning track designed to answer your specific questions and spark your imagination.

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.
This is your chance to meet with people of all backgrounds who are working on the ground, to swap ideas and gain insights into successful, integrated landscape restoration projects. Network with experts and peers using our digital platform.
Ask the questions you have been saving; chances are good that at this digital event, you’ll meet the right people who can give you answers – on food and livelihoods, finance and supply chains and ecosystem restoration.
