Global Landscapes Forum

As of: November 2018

Objective and activities

The GLF is a science-led multi-sectoral platform producing and disseminating knowledge and accelerating action to build more resilience, climate-friendly, diverse, equitable and productive landscape. GLF connects diverse stakeholders; provides learning opportunities; gathers and shares knowledge; and accelerates uptake to produce positive, sustainable impact that will contribute to achieving Agenda 2030. The landscape approach seeks to compromise about competing social , environmental, political and economic demands to produce multiple benefits from limited resources. The GFL champions this through 4 activities: engagement through collaborative platforms and events; outreach to expand awareness and interaction; creation of a knowledge hub; and a learning lab for capacity building. These activities contribute to creating a Global Community of Practice to accelerate best practices and positively impact one billion people through the widespread use of landscape approach by 2020.
