Side event: Toward a roadmap for sustainable landscapes investments at scale — Inputs from forestry science

The capital is ready. The project ideas are there. It’s time to scale up.

Don’t miss out on this side event at FAO World Forestry Congress in Durban: On the 9th of September, from 12:45 until 14:15 in the 11CDE meeting room, you will be able to have your say in the future of finance for forests and land use.

In this interactive side event, participants will build on the outcomes from “The Global Landscapes Forum: The Investment Case”, held earlier this year in London, where 200 experts from finance and investment focused on scaling up sustainable landscape solutions.
