Germany

CIFOR’s three-pillar approach of research to impact, capacity development, and outreach and engagement has built a legacy of achievements over the past 25 years … and counting.


CIFOR Bonn interacts with landscape-related research and policy in Germany and Europe. It also hosts the Secretariat for the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF).

The 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 a holistic approach to create sustainable landscapes that are productive, prosperous, equitable and resilient and 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 UNEP and the World Bank and Charter Members.

What is the landscape approach

The Landscape Approach is about balancing competing land use demands in a way that is best for human well-being and the environment. It means creating solutions that consider food and livelihoods, finance, rights, restoration and progress towards climate and development goals.
