Discussion Forum 1: Delivery of quality and diverse planting material

Delivery of quality and diverse planting material is a major constraint for restoration. What solutions, what emerging needs? The Bonn Challenge have now pledged 350 million hectares of degraded land globally for different forms of restoration. It can be an essential contribution to sustainable development, to reduce poverty, food insecurity and enhance biodiversity. However, restoration […]

Discussion Forum 2: Global Bioenergy Partnership

The event aims to discuss the relevance and opportunity of sustainable wood energy production and use as a contribution to forest landscape restoration (FLR) with stakeholders across sectors and especially between FLR and bioenergy stakeholders. The focus of the event will be on Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), as both challenges and opportunities for sustainable woody bioenergy […]

Discussion Forum 4: 10 years of the Global Comparative Study on REDD+

Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation through results-based payments (RBP) is a key distinguishing feature of REDD+. However, REDD+ has evolved into a different set of activities and overall has not yet been as effective and efficient as anticipated when conceived. Nevertheless, the REDD+ debate has visibly advanced countries’ capacities and national and global […]

Olam grows, sources, processes, trades and supplies around 47 different food and fibre commodities including cocoa, coffee, cotton, edible nuts, grains, spices & […]

Discussion Forum 6: Agro-ecological Landscapes for Food Security

This discussion forum offers an opportunity to discuss the transformational changes needed to develop over-arching frameworks such as agro-ecosystems that integrate landscape level approaches for both forest and farm livelihoods and food security. The forum will explore how current landscape management and restoration efforts could be expanded to include opportunities for maintaining, enhancing and restoring […]

Discussion Forum 7: Spatial planning for landscapes: country experiences and global strategies

Spatial planning frameworks have traditionally focused on developing settlements and related infrastructure. Environmental concerns such as biodiversity conservation and climate mitigation and adaptation generally are not reflected as an integral component in the design and implementation of land-use plans. Even if they are considered, the focus and impact of the planning frameworks is often localized […]

Discussion Forum 8: Shaping agricultural supply chains to help people – and landscapes – prosper

The session presents and discusses an innovative approach for sustainable landscape management in the Brazilian savannah involving multi-stake holder governance (federal, state and local governments, research institutions, rural technical assistance entities, farmers and traditional communities) and integrated activities of environmental regularization based on the compliance of the Brazilian Forest Law, forest restoration and implementation of […]

Discussion Forum 9: The Brazilian Forest Code and Sustainable Landscape Management in Brazilian Savannah

The session presents and discusses an innovative approach for sustainable landscape management in the Brazilian savannah involving multi-stake holder governance (federal, state and local governments, research institutions, rural technical assistance entities, farmers and traditional communities) and integrated activities of environmental regularization based on the compliance of the Brazilian Forest Law, forest restoration and implementation of […]

Discussion Forum 10: Rethinking limitations: Combined efforts to achieve the 2030 agenda

In recent years, Landscape approaches have become more popular for solution oriented conservation and management. These strategies often seek to foster tools and concepts for allocating and managing land to achieve social, economic, and environmental objectives in areas where agriculture, mining, and other productive land uses compete with environmental and biodiversity goals. The need for […]

Discussion Forum 11: Don’t ignore drylands: Restoring the forests of Continental Asia

This session will discuss current practices and research results related to forest landscape restoration (FLR) implementation for the diverse environmental and social conditions in the Western, Central, and Northeast Asia, largely (but not limited to) in response to the Astana Resolution and Bonn Challenge. These efforts highlight the need and potential for urgent action in […]
