Transformational change for forests and land use
To address the series of critical challenges facing humanity, we need collective global action. In recent years, countries have stepped up their collaborative efforts to mitigate climate change and address widening inequalities in income, livelihoods, human health, and access to food. To achieve the global development and climate objectives enshrined in the Paris Agreement, the Sustainable Development Goals, and other international agreements, sweeping transformational changes must take place.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) have jointly explored how such transformational change has been defined, what it means, what drives it, and how implementation can be improved. This event will convene a diverse group of actors to provide examples of transformation in the land use sector that are grounded in the climate change discourse. It will also provide insights and experiences to help forest sector actors design and implement transformations in efficient and effective ways.
- Introduce the concept of transformational change
- Provide examples of transformative interventions in forestry and land use
- Demonstrate that transformation in land use, and its associated benefits, is enabled by a transformation in approaches to policy-making and partnerships
