The Global Landscapes Forum

The Global Landscapes Forum, a two-day event held on the sidelines of the UN climate change negotiations as part of the Conference of the Parties (COP19) in Warsaw on 16-17 November 2013, was attended by over 1,200 experts on landscapes, agriculture and forestry.

The Forum was designed to inform the global climate and development frameworks —specifically the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the UN General Assembly (UNGA) — about the opportunities of a “landscape approach” to development.

The Global Landscapes Forum has articulated 13 actionable policy recommendations and incentives for a multilateral climate agreement, the SDG process as well as other actors. These recommendations, summarized below, are based on results of individual sessions and do not necessarily represent a consensus of the Forum as whole.
