GLF Glasgow: Forest, Food, Finance - A New Deal for Earth




Focusing on food, forest and finance to strike the balance between production, consumption and protection, GLF Glasgow will center the opportunities, best practices and lessons learned for collaboration across sectors at the local, national and global levels, including community leaders, government, finance, business, civil society, Indigenous Peoples, researchers, practitioners and youth.​

2021 is your chance to attend a hybrid conference spotlighting how the triple win of forests, sustainable food systems and sustainable finance can accelerate action towards achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. GLF Glasgow, held alongside the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), will give participants an inside look at the latest science and research around forest restoration, supply chains, sustainable finance – and how it’s all connected. Join online or on the grounds of the prestigious University of Glasgow in the United Kingdom. Express your interest using the form below.

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.
