What's on the agenda?
GLF Kyoto offers an opportunity to review the latest science, launch new initiatives and pitch innovative ideas for climate solutions across a myriad of landscapes.

We'll also explore innovative financial initiatives that benefit landscapes while contributing to the climate solutions.
