GLF Digital Summit 2020: Food and livelihoods in ecosystem restoration
The Global Landscapes Forum’s second major Digital Summit will feature conversations with global leaders, experts and influencers on urgent issues related to balancing enhanced food and nutritional security in multifunctional landscapes that can range from forests, croplands, drylands, peatlands and mountains to marine and coastal ecosystems.
The Global Landscapes Forum Digital Summit will be hosted from GLF’s new, state-of-the art Broadcast Center in Bonn, Germany in June 2020. It will feature on urgent issues around balancing enhanced food and nutritional security with restoration of multifunctional landscapes. The Digital Summit will reach some 100,000 participants from around the globe – almost all of them virtually, slashing its carbon footprint.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?
Increasing global food production to satisfy the demands of a growing population doesn’t need to further stress the globe’s natural resources and its biodiversity. Research increasingly suggests that we already produce sufficient food yields to satisfy future generations. It's also shows that people living in multifunctional landscapes supported by intact ecosystems benefit from more nutritious foods.Join in this Digital Summit and form partnerships, forge new policies and incentives for restoration and develop new ideas to tailor these approaches to local settings.
This is your chance to meet with people of all ages who are working on the ground, to swap ideas and gain insights into successful, sustainable landscape restoration. Ask the finance experts questions about available, patient, long-term funding to tap into and how to make this work for your project.
Bring questions you have been saving; chances are good that at this event, you’ll meet the right people who can give you answers – on tenure, financing, supply chains, markets, and financing. Find out from successful restoration projects about the factors that helped their projects succeed – and what to avoid.
