00-04: How Can Climate Investments Support Sustainable Land Use?
1:30pm - 2:45pm
Session Chair: Ian Munro Gray, The World Bank, United States of America
The way we plan and make choices for how we use land are crucially important for meeting the Sustainable Development Goals and tackling climate change. Communities and businesses must work together to meet their economic and environmental goals in an interdependent world with finite resources. Land use affects many aspects of development and – done correctly – can be foundational to poverty eradication. This session will look at:
How can climate investments help deliver multiple benefits within land use sectors?
How can they help unlock the power of value chains to deliver sustainable development in rural areas along with governance and livelihood benefits?
What are the mechanisms and incentives for governments, the private sector and communities to come together?
Join a lively conversation on what it takes to secure social, economic and environmental benefits when business, climate action and people unite for impact. High-level experts and practitioners will share lessons based on their experience on what strategic approaches work in this complex environment.
