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.
Towards transformative forest governance
Transformational change is required to address the climate crises, ecosystem services, biodiversity loss/fragmentation, and growing inequality. However, it is crucial to understand how transformational change should be interpreted, who decides what kind of transformation is needed, of what, and for whom? What principles guide those decisions, and how are decision-makers held accountable? Who will win and who will lose? There is limited data on the effectiveness of different transformational change approaches such as REDD+.
This session brings policymakers, donors, practitioners, and local communities to reflect on lessons on good practices on transformative forest governance through the lens of rights, power, and social justice and propose a future pathway to develop and implement effective, efficient, and equitable climate and forest policies.
