About GLF Climate 2021


From 5–7 November 2021, on the sidelines of the 26th session of the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP 26), GLF Climate: Forests, Food, Finance – Frontiers of Change sparked a global discussion on exactly this question.

The message is clear: the health of people and the planet requires collective actions, individual behavioral changes, and enabling and enforcing government policies and investments that put nature and people first.

The GLF Climate has racked up a record over 1 million views—and counting—from over 140 countries, reached more than 42 million people on social media, and provided a crucial platform for 400 speakers – of which 50 percent were women.


Mobilizing green finance


This session highlights how blending finance from different sources (results-based climate finance, grants, loans, public resources and private investments) enables the integrated cross-sectoral approaches needed to deliver such programs and address sustainable landscape management issues at scale. It features programs such as innovative Emissions Reduction Programs (ERPs) that are now disbursing results-based payments, growing interest in financing for nature-based solutions, initiatives to green finance, and the potential to repurpose significant public funding and incentives through subsidy reform. The session will also highlight initial findings from the Financial Task Force for the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
