COP20 President to speak at CGIAR’s Development Dialogues in September

3 September 2014

Manuel Pulgar-Vidal is a passionate speaker on environmental issues and a supporter of CIFOR’s landscape approach. On September 25, Peru’s Minister of State for Environment and UNFCCC COP20 President will deliver a keynote address at the inaugural CGIAR Development Dialogues in New York.

On December 6-7, his ministry is hosting the Global Landscapes Forum that will take place on the sidelines of the COP20 in Lima, Peru.

At CIFOR’s Forests Asia Summit in Jakarta last May, Pulgar-Vidal held a flaming speech about the urgency to address climate change, about the green economy and the need to include forests in the debate on sustainable development. He mentioned the landscape approach as a way to solve conflicts between different sectors such as mining, oil, forestry, and tourism. We can’t wait to hear him expand his position on landscapes at the Global Landscapes Forum later this year.
