Outcome Statement of the 2016 Global Landscapes Forum: Climate Action for Sustainable Development

One month after the Global Landscapes Forum: Climate Action for Sustainable Development in Marrakesh, we are proud to share with the GLF community the event’s Outcome Statement. The Outcome Statement highlights four cross-cutting messages that sum up some of the most pressing challenges and opportunities for moving towards sustainable landscapes:
  1. Strengthening cross-sectoral collaboration efforts
  2. Increasing engagement with local stakeholders
  3. Pushing to mobilize the private and finance sectors
  4. Implementing new technology and tools to increase transparency and effectively

That's a wrap!

2016 has been a momentous year for the Global Landscapes Forum, with the announcement of Germany’s support for the long-term future of the Forum, two major events in London and Marrakesh and the Forum’s novel goal of engaging one billion people in embracing the landscapes approach by 2020. Join us in reviewing the year’s highlights during this holiday season as we reflect on our accomplishments and look ahead to future endeavors.
