GLF Climate: Frontiers of Change
Hosted on the sidelines of COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and online, GLF Climate 2022: Frontiers of Change united 7,000 participants from 164 countries and rallied over 27 million people on social media around what humanity can still do to avoid the worsening impacts of the climate crisis.
Featuring 228 leading scientists, activists, Indigenous leaders, financiers, youth and government leaders, and 96 incredible partner organizations, the second edition of GLF Climate called for a just transition to a stewardship economy that puts people and nature first.
Integrated and context-specific fire management and fire risk reduction
This panel session hosted by Tropenbos offers an opportunity to share integrated and context-specific fire management and fire risk reduction approaches that combine restoration and regeneration practices and traditional knowledge, as well as how these practices can be scaled up to become part of Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (NDCs).
Panelists provide practical examples of integrative approaches that take into account wildfire risk and climate change with a particular focus on the active involvement of Indigenous Peoples and local communities, local governments, and small and medium holders in wildfire-prone areas as key to developing more effective, country-specific, wildfire risk reduction strategies and policies.
