The Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) has joined the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) as a charter member, building momentum towards a more sustainable future by bringing to the forum its 13 members from Latin and North America, Africa, Asia, and Europe.
The SAN is a global network of NGOs working to transform agriculture by promoting and implementing good practices that contribute towards building sustainable landscapes. The organization will share its expertise working with farmers, supply chains and communities, and will add to the GLF’s growing platform and network of environment and development organizations.
“Being a GLF charter member is an incredible opportunity for the SAN Secretariat, Members and Partners to share experiences from the field which prove that by working collectively with shared goals we can transform agriculture to a more sustainable and equitable pathway,” said José Joaquín Campos, SAN’s Executive Director.
“Joining the Global Landscapes Forum allows SAN to connect with many other players to speed up the transformation needed in this critical sector in order to achieve the SDGs and climate targets,” he added, “for which the agricultural sector has a lot to contribute.”
“SAN’s rich international expertise in catalyzing climate-smart agricultural practices and creating more sustainable landscapes makes it an obvious fit with the mission and objectives of the Global Landscapes Forum,” said GLF’s managing director John Colmey. “We’re very excited to have the network on board.”
One of SAN’s first actions as a GLF charter member will be to organize a workshop focused on integrating responsible sourcing regions with sustainable supply chains, as part of GLF Bonn in June 2020.
