In late August, the United Nations Office at Nairobi, Kenya (UNON) hosted the Global Landscapes Forum. The event’s motto was “Prospects and Opportunities for Restoration in Africa”.

About 800 participants attended the Africa Conference of the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) in Nairobi, Kenya end of August. This year’s African GLF, entitled “Prospects and Opportunities for Restoration in Africa”, had a strong focus on forestry and environment. The two-day event focused on challenges and opportunities of sustainable land management and rehabilitation. The Economics of Land Degradation initiative (ELD) organised a discussion forum that was part of the GLF programme. 

History of the Global Landscapes Forum

Since 2017, the Secretariat of the Global Landscapes Forum has been based in Bonn, Germany. It has become the largest exchange and knowledge transfer platform world-wide on issues related to land and landscape management. During the last few years, the GLF has turned into a voice of the environmental, forestry and restoration community. Since its inception conference in Bonn in December 2017, the GLF, substantially funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), has developed into a platform for implementing agencies, the research community and decision-makers.
