The idea goes beyond merely setting up individual stalls with piles of random brochures. Instead, exhibitors at the Global Landscapes Forum, in Lima on 6-7 December, will share their space and their knowledge in seven Thematic Pavilions. The pavilions will feature information and ideas from 33 organizations, including members of the private sector, research community, civil society, governments and UN agencies, giving event participants opportunities to learn more about:
- Climate Change
- Family Farmers in Living Landscapes
- Food Security, Livelihoods and Poverty Reduction
- Green Economy & Sustainable Investments
- Technology & Innovation
- Indigenous Peoples
The seven pavilions will be open over both days of the event, in the Westin Hotel, right at the heart of the action.
Knowledge sharing will culminate in a big “Share Fair” on the evening of 6 December, where participants can engage in interactive sessions, gain insights into the challenges that exhibitors face in their work and broaden not only their knowledge, but also their personal networks. Representatives from Peru’s ministries of environment and agriculture, CIFOR, UNEP and FAO will be there to answer questions.
