About GLF Climate 2021


Hosted digitally and in Glasgow alongside COP26, the GLF Climate 2021 hybrid conference made a unanimous call for ambitious, concrete action to stop the climate crisis.

Attended by 4,386 digital participants from 145 countries, along with 481 in-person participants at the University of Glasgow, the event featured 400 leading scientists, activists, Indigenous leaders, financiers, youth, and government leaders.

Across 67 plenaries, interactive sessions, launches, and climate talks, GLF Climate: Forests, Food, Finance – Frontiers of Change explored the potential of three key climate solutions: forest restoration, resilient food systems, and sustainable finance. Messages spread on social media rallied 41.34 million people around concrete ways to address the climate emergency as quickly as possible.


About the Crop Wild Relatives Project


This session celebrates the major successes and lessons learned over a decade of adapting crops to climate change through the pioneering Crop Wild Relatives Project. It brings together stakeholders from the project and explore the urgent need to collect and use crop wild relatives to combat the devastating effects of the rapidly changing climate. It promotes the participatory approach and the need for researchers and breeders to work closely with farmers and farming communities. As the project comes to a close, we also look to its sister project, BOLD, funded with USD 58 million from the Government of Norway, managed by the Crop Trust and launched in 2021.
