This Digital Forum will explore how finance can tackle the global extinction crisis by investing in conservation and restoration.

Food, medicine, energy, raw materials – we depend on biodiversity for all of these things. But as the sixth mass extinction beckons, how can we make our natural resources last for generations to come?

On 29 November, the Luxembourg–GLF Finance for Nature platform will explore ways to support local action for nature-based solutions, conservation and ecosystem restoration through appropriate financing mechanisms and incentives.

Ahead of the CBD COP15, this Digital Forum will dive into some of the major challenges facing the world of finance in the context of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

Join financiers, business leaders, policymakers and scientists to learn how we can protect and restore nature while also boosting our economies.

Working away at climate change

Media seminar:

Working away at climate change

Reporting on the intersections of climate change, rights and labor

Free online seminar in English | 2–3 November 2022

SOCIAL

#COFO26

The hard truth is that most people spend the majority of their lives working, but due to climate change, occupation, location and financial rewards and are slipping increasingly out of control.  

In preparation for COP27, and in a time in which fact-based reporting must serve as a cornerstone of climate action, the Global Landscapes Forum and Pulitzer Center have prepared a two-day free online seminar for English-speaking journalists to better examine climate change through the lenses of the rights and labor of the most vulnerable populations. 

Join leading reporters, editors and researchers from around the world to learn about the regional and global impacts of climate change on health, migration, productivity and more. Be the first to hear of the latest advancement for Indigenous Peoples’ land rights as well as the rising concept that puts people at the center of novel economic frameworks. 

Participation in the seminar will afford interview opportunities with leading sources as well as an in-person or online ticket to the hybrid conference GLF Climate: Frontiers of Change, 11–12 November 2022 alongside COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh. See more information in the application form below. 

Agenda

DAY 1 (2 NOVEMBER 2022 - 14:00-15:30 CET)

14:00 – 14:45

Panel: Toward healthier places of work in climate-stressed environments

Interaction: 15-minute Q&A at the end of the 30-minute panel

Three Pulitzer Center journalists will present and discuss investigations they are currently pursuing, focused on climate change’s impact on human health in places of work around the world. From climate-related conflict among farmers in the Upper Nile, to worker productivity under extreme heat in Qatar, to the dichotomous realities of flooding and drought in East Africa, the journalists will discuss the purpose of their stories and reporting mechanisms.  

Moderated by
Speakers
15:00 – 15:25

Briefing: The launch of the Land Rights Standard

Interaction: 10minute Q&A at the end of the 15-minute briefing 

What began as a humble initiative for Indigenous leaders to voice their demands is this year being launched alongside COP27 at GLF Climate as a first-of-its-kind international standard for fair, just, inclusive and sustainable land rights for Indigenous, local and Afro-descendent peoples. Three years in the making, the Land Rights Standard saw the Rights and Resources Institute, in collaboration with the Indigenous Peoples Major Group and the Global Landscapes Forum, facilitate a drafting process led by more than 70 Indigenous and local groups and organizations from around the world. In this briefing, representatives will share how the standard was created and the impact it can achieve.

Speakers

DAY 2 (3 NOVEMBER 2022 - 14:00-15:30 CET)

14:00 – 14:45

Panel: Agile reporting on labor migrations

Interaction: 15-minute Q&A at the end of the 30-minute panel 

As climate change forces people away from their homes, workforces are interrupted and forced to adapt to incoming and outgoing populations, bringing massive market implications on global scale and upheaval at the local level. In this session, two Pulitzer Center journalists and an expert from the UN International Organization for Migration will share insights from some of the regions facing migration most – India, Iraq and Latin America and the Caribbean – to compare and contrast how environmental and cultural landscapes are handling climate migration. 

Moderated by
Speakers
15:00 – 15:25

Briefing: The meaning of “stewardship”

Interaction: 10-minute Q&A at the end of the 15-minute briefing 

The concept of stewardship is engrained in history, but in the climate space, it’s being given a new lease on life as a term of the moment. From economic models to value chain frameworks to policy, stewardship is being looked to as the basis when revising relationships between humans and nature within existing global systems. But what are the origins of this term? Who is a steward? How has stewardship looked in the past, and in what forms should it take hold now? The briefing will acquaint journalists with what this term really means, how it can be protected from becoming jargon, and why it’s important in shaping narratives about the future.

Transforming food systems from the bottom up: Social innovations for soil restoration

In this webinar, speakers from Benin, Kenya, and Burkina Faso will present how social innovations for soil restoration were developed at the community level and the changes they have brought about. This will be followed by an expert panel that will reflect on the opportunities and challenges of bringing such innovations to scale.

The transition to inclusive, climate-resilient and crisis-proof agri-food systems is an enormous task that requires innovation.

The One World, No Hunger (EWOH) initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has opened a space for transformation and innovation through collective efforts, vast investments and mutual learning across a broad partner network.

Given the central role of soils in the transformation of agri-food systems, one of the initiative’s core programs is Soil Protection and Rehabilitation for Food Security (ProSoil). Soils are more than a means of production. They are the largest carbon sink on land, host a quarter of the world’s biodiversity and play a key role in water purification, nutrient cycling, and many other functions.

Social innovations for soil restoration

Implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, ProSoil seeks to restore and protect over 2 million hectares in six African countries and India by 2025. However, a major challenge facing such programs is the long-term adoption of sustainable land management (SLM) practices. When program support ends, farmers often stop applying the promoted technologies.

Against this backdrop, the EWOH places accompanying research at the heart of its approach to development cooperation, led by TMG Research, a think tank based in Berlin. The research project served as a platform and breeding ground for innovation through social ‘experimentation’ around alternative ways to implement solutions. TMG, GIZ and local partners developed and piloted social innovations in Kenya, Benin, and Burkina Faso to address socio-cultural and governance barriers to SLM technology adoption. Developed in multi-stakeholder settings, the innovations address issues of land tenure security and farmer-to-farmer knowledge transfer. As locally adapted and socially legitimate solutions, they create a strong enabling environment for farmers to implement SLM measures on a broad, long-term scale.

Smallholders need secure land tenure to ensure investments in ecosystem restoration and food security and land-based adaptation options for millions of people around the world. As the global community scrambles to address multiple crises, responsible land governance is more urgent than ever before.

In this context, TMG Research and its partners have developed a human rights-based approach to land governance monitoring, including a reference tool called the Human Rights and Land Navigator, which they will launch during this side event session. The online tool aims to make the UN-backed Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries, and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) more tangible by detailing the human rights on which they are based.

During the session, UNCCD stakeholders and human rights actors discussed the potential of the international human rights system and the new tool to enhance the implementation of the VGGT and safeguard legitimate tenure rights for ecosystem restoration. The event provided practical entry points for land rights defenders, national-level policymakers and human rights bodies to advocate for and monitor progress on land governance instruments.

12 May 2022 18:00-20:00

During this session, we learned how land degradation neutrality relates to land tenure security and why tenure security is important to combat the further degradation of land. We learned how land tenure security is embedded in a wider spectrum of human rights and what is needed to secure these multiple rights for those living on and from the land. We learned from local, regional and global actors, what instruments they use to align legal frameworks with local realities, and what it takes to bridge formal legislation with informal realities on the ground. Finally, we discussed the pros and cons of multi-stakeholder dialogue, which is increasingly seen as an instrument to bridge the two and help strengthen land tenure security for all.

Young Africans have strong visions for their land: their stories of restoring landscapes are also stories of young people defining their own narratives of a good life and creating multiple, contradictory and coexisting futures across the continent. In this short session co-created by the World Agroforestry Center, the Global Landscapes Forum and the Youth in Landscapes Initiative  young Kenyan restoration practitioner Adrian Leitoro shared his thoughts and experiences, focusing on the importance of healthy landscapes for climate adaptation and food sovereignty in Africa.

16 May 2022 13:15-14:45

People living in drylands and areas affected by degradation are amongst the most vulnerable to climate change impacts. To protect their livelihoods, it is crucial to take measures to avoid, reduce, and reverse land degradation as well as ensure the security of their land tenure, as was recognized and highlighted at UNCCD COP14 in 2019 through the COP14/26 decision on land tenure.

This side event hosted by the TMG Think Tank for Sustainability outlined progress made by Parties to the Convention since COP14 on aligning national land degradation neutrality plans with the COP14/26 decision and highlighted opportunities to further scale up existing efforts. It also addressed the importance of land tenure for land-based adaptation and responses to drought.
