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.

Planning for the future health of the planet

Networking

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.

Learning

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.

""Children all around the world are experiencing the effects of our climate crisis. Article 6 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child states that children have an inherent right to life. When children are experiencing floods, wildfires, heat waves, hurricanes that are disrupting their rights, then that is threatening their rights as children""

Alexandria Villaseñor
Founder, US Youth Climate Strike and Earth Uprising

""Restoration of 350 million hectares of degraded land between now and 2030 could generate $9 trillion in ecosystem services and take an additional 13-26 gigatons of greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere.""

UN Environment and UN FAO

""We need to take action. Let’s do it. Let’s establish a committee with different sectors, regions and ages where we define an operational root for the decade on restoration, because we are running out of time""

El Salvador Minister of Environment and Natural Resources
