Forest frontiers: safeguarding forests for sustainable food and livelihoods

30 Jun 2020

At the frontiers of our forests, where agricultural expansion is driving fragmentation and deforestation, ecosystems are disappearing at an alarming speed – compromising biodiversity as well as the livelihoods and food security of local communities. At GLF Bonn 2020, the BirdLife Partnership shared ways to secure forests that also impact positively on local communities.

Originally titled “Forest frontiers: accelerating forest-positive solutions for sustainable food and livelihoods”, this session hosted by BirdLife International aired on June 4th, 2020 at the GLF Bonn Digital Conference.
