The Climate Action in the Landscape GLF: As it happened

On the ground there is life, and life cannot wait” – Tomasz Chruszsczow, Special Envoy for Climate Change, Polish Minister of Environment

On 9 December, the second climate-focused GLF event unfolded in Katowice, Poland, alongside COP24. Government officials, international organizations and NGOs, indigenous leaders and researchers came together to connect, learn, share their work and ideas to boost climate action within landscapes. Land use, biodiversity, indigenous community rights and forest restoration were core to the livestreamed discussions on how we can move faster and better in keeping global warming below 2°C.

So, what can we do? Bringing unlikely partners to the same table, “protecting the protectors” and holding the private sector accountable were seen as key to tackling what could be our biggest challenge.
