We also provide communication coverage through our social media channels and digital content platforms such as Landscape News and GLF Live, as well as facilitate global connections at GLF events.

In cooperation with

FOLUR Impact Program

We need to implement sustainable, integrated policies that address all uses of the land, breaking down the silos of the past and building long-term collaboration.
Intact ecosystems are critically important in ensuring a resilient and sustainable food system as they provide environmental services including regulation of water retention and runoff, crop pollination, and soil retention and fertility.

Commodity Focus

This landscape approach seeks to provide tools and concepts for allocating and managing land to achieve multiple goals – including protecting and conserving landscapes that produce the world’s food – while also reducing poverty.
