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.

 

Restoring soil while ensuring productivity

 

The soil, a key component of land, remains a vital support for plant growth and livestock rearing, but its misuse or mishandling can impact food production broadly. Climate change has adversely affected agricultural production, with many farmlands already degraded, resulting in meager yields.

This session hosted by GLFx chapters Banjul and Ibadan showcases the experience of two countries of Sub-Saharan Africa: The Gambia and Nigeria, and the practices that are applied, or need to be applied, by local farmers and other stakeholders to restore landscapes while ensuring productivity and respecting natural resources.
