Edmund G. Brown Jr. Keynote: Science-policy exchange GLF 2015

US Governor of California, Edmund G. Brown Jr., speaks at the high-level plenary session from the second day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2015, in Paris, France alongside COP21.

The session builds a bridge between the research and policy communities, focusing on the role landscapes play in achieving SDGs and new climate goals. The session explores how useful the landscape approach is for achieving the new climate and development goals, provides concrete suggestions for policy and practice, asks how climate action in landscapes work, how we analyze changes over time, and how policymakers and their institutions acquire “environmental intelligence”.

Edmund G. Brown asserts that although climate change is a global challenge, local action is crucial and talks about the need to redesign our local communities to meet the challenge of climate change.
