The Global Landscapes Forum: Peatlands Matter thematic event provided a space for more than 400 peatlands stakeholders, policymakers, scientists, and private sector actors to convene in Jakarta on May 18, 2017, with thousands joining in online livestreams and discussions. The platform explored what it means to employ multi-directional and multi-stakeholder dialogues in practice, spearheading a community-first and people-centered approach to peatlands management.
