CIFOR@GLF: Generating science and solutions

Following the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) in Bonn, Germany, the Center for International Forestry Research’s (CIFOR) Forests News spoke with CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA) Director Vincent Gitz about the program’s involvement in the event. This included a discussion titled ‘Rainfall Recycling’ as a Landscape Function: Connecting SDGs 6, 13 and 15, which showed that trees, rather than simply transpiring water, are part of a cycle that results in rainfall.
