Webinar on Diversification - 9 June
Join us for a webinar on Diversification
Working with smallholder farmers to make food security and resilience part of climate change mitigation
Wednesday, 9 June 2021, 11:00 – 13:00 GMT+2
organized by Forest and Farm Facility in collaboration with the Vietnamese National Farmers Union (VNFU)
The urgency of climate change is increasing international efforts to find solutions. Forest loss both contributes to and is accelerated by climate change. Our climate goals cannot be met without achieving our objectives to protect and restore forests. The world’s forests and its climate require a helping hand.
Fortunately, the world’s 1.5 billion smallholder farmers embody 3 billion helping hands. But they, too, are vulnerable to climate threats. Stories from around the world show that it is possible to secure food from more resilient landscapes, stop forest loss and mitigate climate change at the same time. The secret lies in organized smallholders diversifying into more resilient agroforestry systems, tree planting and natural forest protection at landscape scales. It’s a brilliant nature-based solution!
This virtual Webinar will showcase how grassroots organizations through diversification are able to build back food security and climate resilience while also mitigating climate change at a significant scale.
