Transforming unsustainable land management

Agriculture and Rural Development
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019 12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Contact organizers for location details

Nature plays a critical role in offering ecosystem services worth an estimated $110tn: biodiversity, regulating the water cycle, storing and filtering water, producing food and fuel, natural recycling of waste, eliminating pollutants and storing CO2. It is also our key ally to mitigate climate change. The upcoming Special Report of the IPCC, looking at how climate change affects land use, will demonstrate clearly that we are reaching planetary boundaries. Immediate action is required, as the disconnect remains high and the social and economic benefits lands and forests generate are undervalued. Europe should develop policy coherence for global prosperity and security, create awareness of the power of nature in carbon sequestration.

This event is part of our Development Policy Forum (DPF), which brings together a number of important development actors, including the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the European Investment Bank (EIB), the United Nations and the World Bank. Reflecting the growing role of the private sector in development, the DPF has now welcomed Coca-Cola and Eni to the forum. The DPF contributes to the global and European conversation on inclusive development. Through its activities and publications, the DPF reflects the rapidly-changing global debate on growth and development and seeks to encourage a multi-stakeholdered, fresh, up-to-date thinking on the multiple challenges facing the development community.
