We are the world’s largest knowledge-led platform on sustainable land use, dedicated to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Climate Agreement. We have connected 4,400 organizations and 180,000 participants to our gatherings in Warsaw, Lima, London, Paris, Marrakech, Jakarta, Bonn, Washington D.C., Katowice, Nairobi and Kyoto – and reached over 500 million from 185 countries. We are greening Africa through the AFR100 and Latin America through Initiative 20×20. We are fighting to save the world’s peatlands through the Global Peatlands Initiative and its coastal communities through the Blue Carbon Partnership. We are developing innovative finance mechanisms to invest in sustainable farming and supply chains with the Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) and the Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility, among others.
We aspire to spark a movement of 1 billion people around sustainable landscapes. Crazy right? But no one ever achieved anything big by thinking small.
We believe in taking a holistic, fact-based approach to the most pressing global challenges: restoring billions of hectares of idle, degraded land; tackling insecure tenure, community and gender rights; addressing food insecurity and declining rural livelihoods; confronting inadequate finance and unsustainable supply chains; and finding a universal framework of indicators to adequately measure progress.
