11 Dec 2015

Watch this Discussion Forum on the first day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2015, in Paris, France alongside COP21. In defining their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs), countries have shown a wealth of approaches to construct visions of a sustainable and resilient future – and to determine objectives and means to pursue them, which include the forest and agriculture sectors. The session provides an opportunity for different actors to showcase success, share lessons learned, challenges and experiences and explore opportunities in the preparation of the INDCs and of related processes including the question how ongoing sub-national initiatives could contribute.
