The 2015 Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) was the largest event convened on the sidelines of the UNFCCC COP21 in Paris. Over two days (5-6 December), the Forum brought together more than 3,200 participants from agriculture, forestry, water management, finance and other land use decision makers.
At the Forum, participants committed to:
- restoring 128 million ha of degraded and deforested landscapes
- protecting watersheds across the Andes, led by 125 city and regional governments
- creating the first and only payments for ecosystem services initiative in the Pacific Islands
- establishing the International Partnership for Blue Carbon led by the Governments of Australia, Costa Rica and Indonesia.
