On 5–7 November 2021, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) hosted GLF Climate: Forests, Food, Finance – Frontiers of Change, a hybrid conference that brought together thousands of individuals from around the world to accelerate action on land management, meet climate goals, and tackle seemingly incompatible trade-offs.
The hybrid event provided a critical opportunity for leading thinkers and actors to meet, both virtually and in-person, and lay down landscape-based pathways for meeting climate commitments focusing on creating positive tipping points in forests, food, and climate.
The GLF Climate has racked up a record over 1 million views—and counting—from over 140 countries, reached more than 42 million people on social media, and provided a crucial platform for 400 speakers – of which 50 percent were women.
This report provides key statistics on the conference’s reach, participants and achievements and spotlights the donors and partners who made it happen.
