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.
Leveraging forests and trees for transformational adaptation
FAO is collaborating with partners to enhance the role of forests and trees in climate change adaptation policy and action. This session highlights a new FAO technical paper that discusses the policy implications of a set of principles for leveraging forests and trees for transformational adaptation.
Speakers share key messages and case studies from the paper in the context of COP27, including the potential of forests and trees to contribute to mitigation and adaptation synergies, and disaster risk management.
