The world’s largest knowledge-led multi-sectoral platform for integrated land use. Over 200 delegates will connect with top thinkers in government, international firms and land-use experts on the financial frontlines.
GLF Luxembourg attracts people who are tackling the big challenges. Presenters cover topics including shifts in consumer demand, new sectors, technology for production and monitoring value chain activities.
Learn and disseminate simultaneously. Previous GLF events have attracted tens of thousands of viewers to the livestream, and reached tens of millions of people via social media.
"The event has shown us both the policy side – tenure reforms, PES and so on, and the innovative financing needed to mobilise more private sector funding for sustainable landscapes."
Senior Director for the Environment and Natural Resources Global Practice, World Bank
"The big issue is how we create an asset class the traditional financial market can invest in, the way we did it with renewable energies. To move billions we need to start collaborating effectively. To achieve this, each actor needs to understand his role in the financial supply chain."
President and CEO, Calvert Impact Capital
"As a person who works in sustainable land management (SLM), the GLF event gave the opportunity to understand better what investors want from SLM."

This knowledge can be used to foster more meaningful and effective investments, avoid and overcome potential risk, and advance global goals toward sustainable financial activities.
