Louis Verchot at GLF: Climate-resilient agriculture

08 Dec 2016

Louis Verchot, Director of the Soils Research Area at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), speaks on the sidelines of the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF), held on 16 November 2016 in Marrakesh, Morocco.

Now in its sixth installment, the Forum is undergoing a transformation, from focusing on policy advice to implementing action on the ground and tracking progress toward new climate and development goals. Through scientific input, capacity-building programs, online engagement, thematic symposiums and global events, GLF aspires to introduce one billion people by 2020 to the landscape approach – and connect them in embracing it.

The GLF is more than just a series of events: it is a dynamic platform with which diverse stakeholders can collaborate to create a more sustainable world.
