Landscape Talks 1: Ready, action: How to sustainably manage, restore and conserve the world’s valuable landscapes - 09:00-10:30 LIVE NOW

New York
  • New York

    Exciting examples of sustainable landscape management occur when governments, private organisations and civil society organisations work together to establish and finance new courses of action. There is a great flurry of new arrangements observing to these ‘landscape commons’. Similar to the Chamber of Commerce, we need more structural and vocal representation of these kind of […]

  • New York

    This landscape talk will focus on viewing forest management as part of a wider landscape management approach. By showcasing a solution for sustainable and integrative forest management that has been successfully practiced in Central Asia, the talk aims at highlighting the need for a landscape perspective in forest management planning to address the various environmental, social, and economic challenges that forest management faces.

    The talk will focus on the case of Tajikistan, where the Joint Forest Management (JFM) approach was used successfully. JFM allows the local population – either individuals or groups – to actively participate in forest management and support the rehabilitation of degraded natural forests.

  • New York

    The focus of the talk is about the conservation and management of rural landscapes, with a specific focus on the FAO agricultural heritage systems sites. The talk will also address their role for achieving the sustainable development goals, the ongoing training projects for creating managers of these systems, particularly in developing countries. In addition, the […]

    • Mauro Agnoletti
      Director of the Laboratory for Landscape and Cultural Heritage , University of Florence
  • Indigenous Peoples have long been recognised as central players in many of the world’s landscapes. However, the extent of their influence has never been fully understood – no attempt has ever been made to quantify the area owned or managed by Indigenous Peoples, the condition of those lands, the uses to which those lands are […]

  • New York

    How can forest restoration best be incentivized and monitored? Which finance and policy instruments best support integrated approaches and payments for externalities? How can communities and SMEs be connected to financiers and project developers for landscape management and restoration initiatives? These are questions the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) has grappled with for a number of […]

Landscape Talks 2: 3 for the money: Landscapes that profit for business, people and nature - 18:00-19:30 LIVE NOW

New York
  • New York

    This talk will show how financing sustainable landscapes requires a comprehension of the systems driving ecosystem loss and degradation, public regulatory and fiscal policy, and the arsenal of potential finance solutions.

    • David Meyers
      Executive Director, Conservation Finance Alliance
  • New York

    The talk will have a strong community focus and will include learning around how to
    support women, girls and vulnerable groups to find their voice in decisions around natural
    resource management and particularly with respect to growing their role in the administration of Payment for Ecosystem Service funds in historically patriarchal societies.

    • Dorothea Pio
      Biodiversity Finance Specialist, Fauna & Flora International
  • Making the argument that FLR is doable everywhere, the talk presents a road map of why and how landscapes can be restored from wastelands to vital lands. The talk uses vivid examples, highlights innovative financial instruments, showcases cutting edge partnerships with private actors, and emphasizes the focal value of international partnerships, e.g. the Bonn Challenge. […]

    • Paola Agostini
      Lead Natural Resources Management Specialist, Europe and Central Asia, World Bank
  • Research have pointed that to date – there is no incentives for politically elected leaders to push for sustainability on their jurisdiction. The talk will explore the current process of defining success and connecting available incentives from public finance, market actors and charity through Jurisdictional Approach (JA) to support committed jurisdictional leaders in Indonesia to […]

  • “I will address the Intelligence of Nature’s Design process and how we can use it within businesses to impact the world positively while generating profit. You should all be excited because I will inspire you to see that you can make more money from growing your raw materials from the forest than deforesting. I will […]

  • This Landscape Talk will demonstrate how public-private-civil society partnerships can help address complex challenges such as deforestation, using the example of the Cocoa and Forests Initiative.

  • New York

    This talk will present the Olam Palm Gabon plantations, the world’s first independently verified climate-positive palm plantations, which have catalysed a multi-stakeholder initiative for sustainable agriculture, including a national land use plan and enabling regulatory framework, in the world’s most rainforest-rich nation. Palm oil is the world’s most controversial crop, but beyond the polemic, what […]

  • New York

    This talk will spark a discussion about the opportunities, but also the limits, of how far scientists can make their results accessible to local communities or at least to certification bodies such as FSC that have more established participation processes. While there are inherent difficulties in making complex issues accessible to people across various educational […]

  • New York

    Various solutions to land restoration exist already. What is needed is upscaling through education, partnerships and sustainable business models to move from pledges to implementation to tackle the grand challenge of land restoration globally. The private sector has financial resources for scaling up land restoration. What is vital is that business professionals are educated about […]

Landscape Talks 4: People power: Governance, management and rights - 16:00-17:30 LIVE NOW

New York
  • New York

    Wild animals have been hunted for their meat, hides and other body parts since prehistoric times. In the tropics hunting of wildlife serves to feed many families and is also a source of income. The overall consensus is that wildlife is imperilled by burgeoning human populations, technological advances, but moreso by the emergence of a […]

  • We bring our learning from the majestic landscapes of the Hindu Kush Himalaya drawing from our rich experiences. As Confucius said, ”By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the most bitter.” Living and working in a geopolitically […]

    • John Colmey
      Director, Communications, Outreach and Engagement, CIFOR
  • Reducing deforestation in tropical forest areas requires effective environmental governance and the transformation of agricultural systems towards less land-demanding production forms. A large amount of research investigates the effect of enforcing environmental regulations on reducing tropical deforestation, but less studies focus on the effect of environmental governance on the transformation of agricultural systems. We show […]

  • A significant part of the clearance of natural forests is happening in order to use the land for agricultural activities. The legal frameworks governing this forest conversion are crucial and complex. They involve the laws of several different sectors (e.g. land, forest, environment and tax laws). The legal frameworks are also often unclear, incomplete or […]

      Coordinator, Climate & Forests Programme , Client Earth
  • Landscape restoration needs to be bottom up and based on a realistic understanding of what communities want. And that includes women, young people and marginalised groups. Maybe we have all been saying this for a long time. But are we doing it? We have big (and very good) global ambitions – to plant billions of […]

  • From local to global and from production to conservation; in any given landscape we find many functions and interests. For sustainable landscapes it is key to understand how these interests are balanced in rules and decision-making processes, and how this influences the behavior of actors in the landscape.

Constructive critique. This book provides a critical, evidence-based analysis of REDD+ implementation so far, without losing sight of the urgent need to reduce forest-based emissions to prevent catastrophic climate change. REDD+ as envisioned has not been tested at scale. Results-based payment, the novel feature of REDD+, has largely gone untested. International funding (both public and […]
