GLF Climate: Forests, Food, Finance - Frontiers of Change

The Earth is on the brink of catastrophe. We are on track for 3°C of global warming by 2100 – and from record temperatures to raging wildfires, many of us are already dealing with the dangerous realities of climate change on a daily basis.

Join us at one of the most important climate summits in history

It’s been 25 years since the first UN climate change conference, and this year’s COP26 comes at a more pressing time than ever.

Will we make it count?

The research is there. The ideas are there. The ways to act are there.

From 5–7 November, this all converges at GLF Climate. Take part in panels and conversations to learn what needs to be done and how. The three-day event will focus on the areas most crucial to bringing climate change under control: forests, food and finance.

Join policymakers, Indigenous leaders, writers, royalty, youth activists, scientists and many more in strategizing our way to a better future.

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.

What will you do at GLF Amazon?

GLF Amazon will build on lessons learned from the creation and management of protected areas, Indigenous reserves and community forests. The territories within the Amazon require an integrated, transboundary and rights-based approach to catalyzing restoration and conservation efforts. Space must be created for Indigenous groups, local communities and institutions to connect to global processes and technologies, in order to combine new innovations and old practices, balance development and conservation, and embed inclusive, equitable and sustainable bioeconomies within Amazonian landscapes.
