On the day of the opening of #COP28, join us for a thought-provoking webinar that delves into the intricate relationship between land governance and climate resilience, a critical area that has gained immense importance in the context of global climate challenges and sustainable land use practices. This event aims to unpack the crucial role inclusive land governance plays in building climate resilience.
To set the scene, Richard Sliuzas from the University of Twente will launch a scoping study into the land-climate nexus, after which we'll dive into specific elements of this nexus, with a specific focus on inclusive approaches, with examples from the ground.
We're excited to bring together a panel of key change-makers in this process (local government, donors, practitioners and academia), who will reflect on these elements. Not only will they discuss the challenges and opportunities amongst themselves, but your insights, questions and experiences will also play a central role!
This event is not just a webinar; it is a platform for knowledge exchange, networking, and collective learning. We believe that the insights shared during this session will contribute significantly to the ongoing discourse on land governance and climate resilience, providing valuable perspectives for practitioners, policymakers, and academics alike.
We are committed to making this event inclusive, and we encourage participants from all backgrounds and regions to join us in this critical conversation. Together, we can contribute to a future where land governance plays a pivotal role in building resilient communities and ecosystems in the face of climate change.
Secure your spot today and be part of a movement towards sustainable and resilient land governance practices.
