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.

Lessons learned after over 10 years of REDD+ implementation
Based on the recent publications Forest, Climate, Biodiversity and People: Assessing a Decade of REDD+ and A Decade of REDD+: Stakeholder Perceptions of its Implementation, the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) showcases the effects that more than 10 years of REDD+ implementation have had on forests, carbon, biodiversity, and people.
Moreover, the panelists describe and explain potential synergies between Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) and REDD+ such as reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation considering conservation, sustainable management of forests, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks, as well as provide insights on how local stakeholders perceive REDD+ implementation.
