This years GLF puts rights at the heart of sustainable landscapes. It shines a light on the fact that climate change and environmental degradation are made by humans – and they can also be solved by people. Looking at our planet through the lens of rights also summons a critical appreciation of how humans have engaged with the planet and highlights the need to learn from those who have often been marginalized. Recognizing and upholding the rights of the most world’s most vulnerable communities can positively transform development frameworks through landscape approaches if partnerships among all actors in landscapes – from youth to world leaders, and from indigenous and local communities to international organizations – are nurtured and supported.
