2014 Global Landscapes Forum
The second Global Landscapes Forum will be held in Lima on the weekend in the middle of the 20th Conference of the Parties (COP20) to the UNFCCC. With this timing and location, this major event can draw on the presence in the city of world leaders, development experts and leading thinkers to create an influential space to position landscapes at the center of the emerging climate and development agreements.
Countries are forging a successor to the Kyoto Protocol under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and, in parallel, designing a set of Sustainable Development Goals to replace the Millennium Development Goals. Connecting these two processes and multifunctional landscapes is vital if we are to overcome the complex challenges common to everyone on the planet.
The 2014 Global Landscapes Forum will explore the role of sustainable landscapes in the new climate and development agenda along four themes:
- The implementation of integrated landscapes approaches
- Forests, agriculture, mountains and land use in the new climate regime
- Landscapes and the green economy
- Landscapes and the post-2015 development agenda
The two-day event will take place at the Westin Lima Hotel and Convention Center, a 20-minute drive from the COP20 venue and in the only venue in Lima outside the COP with the capacity to support an event of this size and diversity.
The Peruvian Ministry of Environment (MINAM) supports the event as Host Country Partners.
