‘Herding Cats’

Research have pointed that to date – there is no incentives for politically elected leaders to push for sustainability on their jurisdiction. The talk will explore the current process of defining success and connecting available incentives from public finance, market actors and charity through Jurisdictional Approach (JA) to support committed jurisdictional leaders in Indonesia to better implement Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), reduce emission and practice Open Government. The aim is also to pinpoint key building blocks, opportunities, challenges in ‘herding the sustainable investment cats’.

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.
