Watch this Discussion Forum on the second day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2015, in Paris, France alongside COP21. Recent years have seen an expansion of commitments by forest country governments, corporations, donors, and investors to reduce deforestation and land-use emissions. However, these commitments have proven difficult to implement owing to the complex challenges of shifting from business-as-usual to a forest-friendly model of rural economic growth.
During this session we hear from political leaders in three critical jurisdictions at the forefront of practice: East Kalimantan, Indonesia; Para, Brazil; and Yucatan, Mexico.
