Global Landscapes Forum 2017
This year, Global Landscapes Forum, the world’s largest science-led platform on sustainable land use, will take place in Bonn, Germany, on 19-20 December.
Bioversity International will participate in several activities - take a look at the list below.
14:00-15:00 | Why Diversity and Why Now - Seeding resilient restoration
Bioversity International's forestry and restoration experts Riina Jalonen and Chris Kettle will join colleagues from the Global Partnership on Forest and Landscape Restoration for a 1 hour discussion forum that will delve into the importance of genetic diversity of forest seeds in restoration. The talk will take place at the Restoration Pavilion.
In addition to the talk, the above-mentioned partners – together constituting the Global Partnership on Forest and Landscape Restoration – will have eight thematic booths at the Restoration Pavilion to which all GLF participants are warmly invited.
Discover all of the GLF pavilions and read more about why forest restoration needs to become climate-smart.
NB: Global Partnership on Forest and Landscape Restoration and Global Restoration Council Summit will take place in Bonn, Germany, on 17-18 December before the GLF.

Bioversity International’s ‘Trees for Seeds’ initiative provides the tools and capacity building for resilient restoration. Our activities include; the establishment of regional forest genetic resource networks, the identification of gaps in seed supply systems, strengthening seed production capacities and the provision of tools to assist with the conservation of priority species, as well as the selection of suitable species and planting materials to meet restoration objectives.
