FSC Ecosystem Services creates new incentives to protect ecosystem services and sustainably manage forest landscapes

New York

This talk will showcase, using smallholder examples, the FSC’s work in:
– Monitoring approaches for measuring success in landscape restoration
– Policy, governance, and financing instruments to support integrated approaches in productive landscapes
– Experiences and outcomes with payments for externalities
– Innovative schemes for connecting local communities and SMEs, project developers and financiers for viable forest and landscape restoration and management projects
– Role of policy measures and incentives (like PES) for private (domestic) investments in sustainable landscapes in ways that balance social, economic and restoration objectives
– Role of certification and accountability frameworks for land-based investments, e.g. on production models that combine food quality with the quality of the landscape

Host: Sara Sanchez

Organizations are welcome and encourage to host and facilitate side meeting before and during the GLF event, and then bring their results and recommendations to the Forum. A GLF secretariat will be on hand to identify and reserve appropriate Bonn venues. Webinars, engaging social media campaigns, competitions and pre-event discussions will generate momentum and interest in key issue areas to ensure that the GLF accelerates long-term action for sustainable landscapes.

The GLF will have a small secretariat in Bonn, Germany to coordinate all of the above, operated by CIFOR.
