Out of the forest and into the landscape of Central Asia

New York

This landscape talk will focus on viewing forest management as part of a wider landscape management approach. By showcasing a solution for sustainable and integrative forest management that has been successfully practiced in Central Asia, the talk aims at highlighting the need for a landscape perspective in forest management planning to address the various environmental, social, and economic challenges that forest management faces.

The talk will focus on the case of Tajikistan, where the Joint Forest Management (JFM) approach was used successfully. JFM allows the local population – either individuals or groups – to actively participate in forest management and support the rehabilitation of degraded natural forests.

Host: Nicole Pfefferle, GIZ

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.
