UPCOMING GLF DIGITAL SUMMIT: Large scale restoration of agroecosystems – Opportunities and Challenges of participatory monitoring

The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) is a movement dedicated to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Climate Agreement, putting communities first in addressing landscape-level issues. With science and traditional knowledge at the core, we are presenting the digital summit “Large scale restoration of agroecosystems – Opportunities and Challenges of participatory monitoring”.

Restoration practices must be designed in environmentally, socially and economically efficient ways in order to enhance long term farmer adoption. Putting together farmers’ experiences and scientific knowledge through participatory research and monitoring can help to find the most feasible solutions to restore degraded lands and develop resilient agroecosystems. The benefits of stakeholder engagement are multiple, but can lead also to some challenges.

In this Digital Summit, we will present three case studies in which different participatory research and monitoring approaches and methods were used to foster agro-ecosystem restoration.

  1. African thickets and forests
  2. Mediterranean drylands in Spain
  3. Subtropical Atlantic rainforest in Brazil

The webinar will take place on Tuesday 8th of October 2019 from 11am to 12pm CEST.
