FTA event coverage: Global Landscapes Forum is entering a new phase

November 28, 2016

This video shows highlights from the 2016 Global Landscapes Forum, held on 16 November 2016 in Marrakesh, Morocco.

At the closing plenary, on behalf of the German Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Economic Cooperation, State Secretary Jochen Flasbarth pledged support for the long-term future of GLF – and explained why he sees the Forum at the center of efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The GLF is undergoing a transformation, from focusing on policy advice to implementing action on the ground and tracking progress toward new climate and development goals. Through scientific input, capacity-building programs, online engagement, thematic symposiums and global events, GLF aspires to introduce one billion people by 2020 to the landscape approach – and connect them in embracing it.

The GLF is more than just a series of events: it is a dynamic platform with which diverse stakeholders can collaborate to create a more sustainable world.
