Why are “landscapes” important, anyway? Reuters AlertNet set the stage, encapsulating the challenges and opportunities discussed at the Global Landscapes Forum. Fred Pearce explored who should pay for all this — and how. The Conversation examined a landscapes success story, looking at the relation between tree cover and war crimes in Uganda, and how a young forester changed things for the better — starting with just a few seeds. ABC (Australia) chronicled a young Filipino’s passionate call for adaptation support for farmers who were worst hit by Typhoon Haiyan, linking it to how landscapes thinking can translate into climate policy. Meanwhile, The Jakarta Post documented how Indonesia is already putting landscapes approaches into practice to achieve their emission reduction and development goals.
