GLF Kyoto 2019 Concept Note: Climate, Landscapes and Lifestyles

From May 8-12, the world’s leading experts on climate change will gather in Kyoto, Japan, 22 years after the signing of the Kyoto Protocol, the first legally binding treaty to cut greenhouse gases. Scheduled to coincide with Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) plenary meetings on the “2019 Refinement to the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories,” the upcoming Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) conference will attract 300 delegates with tens of thousands more engaged in interactive online sessions and guest video addresses around the world. GLF Kyoto offers an opportunity to review the latest science, launch new initiatives and pitch innovative ideas for climate solutions across a myriad of landscapes, including mountains and drylands, peatlands, rangelands and pastures, forests and oceans. Conversations will zero in on how changes in patterns of human consumption can make a difference. The focus will be on nutrition, fashion, mobility, plastic and food waste. Additionally, we will explore innovative financial initiatives that benefit landscapes while contributing to the climate solutions.

Join the 300 delegates in Kyoto or the tens of thousands more engaged in interactive online sessions across the globe.
