WOCAN at the Global Landscape Forum

Friday, December 4, 2015 - 9:00pm to Saturday, December 5, 2015 - 9:00pm

(Europe/Paris)

Jeannette Gurung will be participating in the Global Landscapes Forum organized by Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) from 5-6 Dec in Paris, on the sidelines of the UNFCCC COP21. 

Priority issues to be addressed in the 2015 Forum include:

  • Tracking support for the restoration of degraded lands worldwide while developing a better understanding of the role of landscapes in solving the climate problem – beyond avoided deforestation;
  • Unlocking increased financing for sustainable landscapes by linking commitments to sustainable supply chains and financial investments in landscape-based commodity production to the funding needed to make the transition to sustainable land use;
  • Strengthening the role of indigenous peoples and local communities in land management decision-making to improve outcomes for nature, climate and people – looking at REDD+ safeguards, tenure, but also the broader development agenda and its relation to landscapes.
