The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) is the world's largest knowledge-led platform on integrated land use, dedicated to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Climate Agreement. The Forum takes an holistic approach to create sustainable landscapes that are productive, prosperous, equitable and resilient. It considers five cohesive themes of food and livelihood initiatives, landscape restoration, rights, finance and measuring progress. It is led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), in collaboration with its co-founders the United Nations Environment Programme, the World Bank and Charter Members.
Support from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) contributes to the management of the GLF secretariat, organizing events, the landscape academy and much more.
in 2020 the project expanded to include a focus on the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. The consortium focuses on the groundwork necessary for a successful launch for the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration in 2021.
