Global Landscapes Forum Amazonia: The Tipping Point – Solutions from the Inside Out
On September 22-23, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) will host the largest-ever global conference on the Amazon Biome. With coverage in English, Portuguese and Spanish, this event will explore how we can preserve and restore the biological and cultural diversity of the world’s mightiest humid tropical forest.
The event will be held as 40 percent of the Amazon nears the tipping point of irreversibly losing its function as water generating rainforest – a catastrophe for human well-being and planetary health, which can still be prevented if the world acts now.
Who is this event for?
Global Landscape Forum: Amazonia invites new and traditional knowledge and perspectives from key actors across the Amazon Biome. Scientists, policymakers, activists, youth, investors, restoration practitioners, community and Indigenous groups, organizations, media – all are welcome to join. We will leverage the latest evidence, innovation and business cases; convene partnerships; generate public support; and help build propositions to balance competing land-use demands between forestry, agriculture and restoration across the biome.
