FTA event recap: Putting pledges into practice in Latin America

April 21, 2016

Watch this Discussion Forum from the Global Landscapes Forum 2015, in Paris, France, the most important event of the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA).

Restoration represents an incredible opportunity to restore productivity to degraded lands, enhance livelihoods, and mitigate climate change. Initiative 20×20 is a country-led effort to bring 20 million hectares of degraded lands into the process of restoration in Latin America and the Caribbean by 2020.

The Discussion Forum highlighted the results achieved on the ground by seven projects that were developed by countries and organizations under the auspices of the 20×20 Initiative. Deborah Bossio, Director of Soil Research of FTA partner CIAT, was one of speakers, together with many business leaders.
