Registration is open for the Global Landscapes Forum, a gathering of preeminent agriculture, forests and climate change researchers, practitioners and policy makers on the sidelines of the UN climate change talks in Warsaw, Poland. The Global Landscapes Forum will seek to bridge sectoral divides, develop a landscape approach and inform future UNFCCC agreements and the achievement of sustainable development goals.
A successor to the influential Forest Days and Agriculture and Rural Development Days held during previous climate change talks, the Global Landscapes Forum bills itself as "the pre-eminent global platform for sharing landscapes development strategies that are climate smart, equitable, productive and profitable, recognizing the central role and identity of farmers and forest-dependent people."
The two-day forum will be structured along the following themes:
- Investing in Sustainable Landscapes and Livelihoods
- Landscape Policy and Governance
- Synergies between Adapting and Mitigation Climate Change in Landscapes
- Landscapes for Food Security and Nutrition
