Transforming landscapes: from innovation to scale
Laurie Spengler, Enclude
Demand for food, fiber and fuel are projected to increase over the next decade and beyond, putting increased pressure on the use of land. This is resulting in significantly increased greenhouse gas emissions, and thereby climate change. Responsible and sustainable management of forests and agricultural land is critical for protecting biodiversity, improving livelihoods, ensuring equitable access to resources and delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals. In this panel, we will discuss the need for a coordinated effort amongst all actors – investors, foundations, governments, non-profits, enterprises – to create the ecosystem that will enable innovation and scale of sustainable land use practices globally. Topics will include blended finance, co-ordination of actors, policy, etc.
