The Global landscapes forum combines into one event two of the world’s most influential annual conferences on the role of forests and agriculture in mitigating and adapting to climate change: forest day and agricultural and rural development day. This will be a global platform to inform and engage world leaders, policymakers, scientists, donors, media, civil society, the private sector, indigenous and community groups, and climate negotiators on the role sustainable landscapes can play in providing food, shelter, income and ecosystem services and environmental goods. The objective is to develop the potential of the landscape approach to inform future UNFCCC agreements and the achievement of the proposed Sustainable Development Goals. To this end, the forum will be organized along four main themes:

  1. Investing in sustainable landscapes and livelihoods. Includes discussion of poverty alleviation, private and public financing
  2. Landscape policy and governance. Includes land tenure, women and gender, rights of communities and farmers
  3. Synergies between adapting to and mitigating climate change in landscapes. Includes MRV of landscapes
  4. Landscapes for food security and nutrition. Includes sustainable food production and consumption, nutritional aspects, wood-fuels and energy efficiency and supporting climate resilient communities (commodity value chains and markets)
