Book your calendars!

We are happy to invite you to FTA’s final event, to be held on the 9th of December on Zoom, 1-4pm CET.

The occasion is unique: we will be wrapping up 10 years of research and presenting our newly launched series “FTA Highlights of a Decade”  as well as some pioneering integrated impact assessment studies. 

We will show how forests, trees and agroforestry, when effectively used, managed and governed, do improve production systems, enhance food security, support livelihoods, advance equity, as well as provide key solutions for landscapes, climate change and biodiversity challenges. We will also reveal key numbers on the tangible influence of the FTA program, spaning over millions of hectares (either preserved from deforestation, restored, or more sustainably managed) and across millions of people worldwide who are now more food and nutrition secure, or with improved means of livelihoods.

REGISTER HERE –> https://forms.gle/suhh1fMEQENhmtrF7

The digital event is open to anyone, so don’t feel shy and share this across your networks!

Presenting the FTA Highlights at GLF Glasgow

The CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry is wrapping-up a decade of research 2011-2021, and looking for the future. This means both looking at new research and new knowledge needed, but also how to bring it to action on the ground. This also requires new partnerships. A push for action does not mean that the research period is over, but that research needs to be embedded into action.

The session will showcase emblematic examples from a decade of research under the FTA program, showing how these have been brought to action and impact, focusing on links to climate, food, biodiversity agendas. It will then feature a discussion of stakeholders at national and international level, on the role they see for research to help them achieve their own objectives, and how they see in practice this role going forward in the 9 years up to 2030, putting findings for action at scale, in landscapes, to address climate, biodiversity and food systems challenge, and at the same time learning and increasing our knowledge. This includes a reflection on how research, innovations from technical solutions to social and institutional innovations around forests and trees and how they can be better managed, can contribute in practice to the climate, biodiversity and food agendas and immediate action. While it is recognized that time is short until 2030 and the urgency in these 3 agendas (climate, food, biodiversity) is to act, it is also urgent to do it mobilizing top-edge current knowledge, as well as, in the path forward, embedding research, further learning and knowledge generation into action.

Youth Contributions at GLF Glasgow!

This event is part of the preparation by FAO and FTA of a roadmap on innovative technologies for sustainable forestry.

According to the Third Asia-Pacific Forest Sector Outlook Study (FAO, 2019), the uptake and scaling-up of innovative forest technologies in the Asia-Pacific region has been slow and uneven. Young people have a key role to play in amending this condition. As technology enthusiasts and forest managers of the future, they are the individuals and cohorts to take leadership and generate momentum through collaboration and social media, transform rigid institutions from within, and participate in the uptake and upscaling of innovative technologies in the forest sector of the region. This is why FAO and FTA organized a call for youth contributions. The event will show case the results of this call and present a collection of papers that illustrate, in various contexts, the potential of innovative technologies to advance sustainable forestry and sustainable forest management.

On 27 October at 12:00-14:00 UTC (14:00-16.00 CEST), the Agroecology TPP is hosting an online event on Research on Agroecology: Current strengths and innovative futures for sustainable food systems. 

This event is free and is open to everyone to attend online – feel free to register!

The topic of agroecological transformation of agrifood systems and its link to the SDGs was one of the most prevalent at this year’s UN World Food Systems Summit in New York. Clearly, there is a perceived urgency for such transformation to occur.

Divided into three parts, this interactive 2-hour session will help you gain first-hand knowledge of the linkage between sustainable intensification and agroecological transformation.

  • Part 1 will provide an introduction to the Agropolis Dossier released this last September. It will give an overview of the extensive research conducted by more than 500 researchers from over 100 universities and research organizations spread around the globe – illustrating the strong commitment of France and CGIAR to promoting the agroecological transition.
  • Part 2 will address the demand and the need for research in the area of agroecology. It will look at current knowledge gaps, new research questions and the emerging need to conduct research differently.
  • Part 3 will talk about how research in agroecology can provide answers to the current global challenges. Experts overview of a variety of ongoing projects and initiatives in the field, such as the Agroecology Coalition, a Million Voices initiative and many more linked to the Agroecology TPP. 

The event will allow ample space for audience interaction with the scientists.

We very much look forward to seeing you online on 27 October to discuss a new global food system based on ecology, equity and participation.

The transformative partnership platform on agroecology (TPP) wishes to launch a bold citizen science campaign to involve smallholder farmers, farm workers and food consumers in generating knowledge to accelerate and document agroecological transitions. This has an initial 18 month time frame supported by SDC, starting with a launch at a UNFSS side event on 24th September 2021 followed up by a series of national and regional events in the ensuing six months to democratically decide what the focus of the citizen science initiative should be and then to implement activities over the following year that will engage at least a million people in generating new knowledge in support of agroecological transitions.

This session reports preliminary lessons learned from gender inclusive initiatives that have increased women’s participation in conservation and development in the Brazilian, Colombian and Peruvian Amazon. These cases cover a diverse collection of indigenous, Afro-descendant and peasant women from across the region. The session will facilitate a discussion of findings from multiple grassroots efforts where women increased participation in natural resource decision making, gained more secure access to natural resources, or improved benefits from natural resource management. The goal will be to gain feedback from a regional audience to synthesize widely applicable lessons for others.

Spanish:
Facilitando espacios para las organizaciones de mujeres por la conservación: soluciones de las mujeres de la Amazoníaa

En esta sesión se presentarán las lecciones preliminares aprendidas de las iniciativas de conservación y desarrollo con perspectiva de género en la Amazonia brasileña, colombiana y peruana.

Descriptions

EN – The session highlights the challenges and opportunities of deforestation-free import regulations to reduce deforestation in regions where commodities are produced by smallholder farmers, such as coffee and cocoa in Peru, through a dialogue in two phases among the actors involved. We will first hear how the EU seeks to minimize the risk that commodities associated with forest loss enter its market and how, from companies to government and farmers, actors along the value chain are planning to meet compliance, the challenge and the risks. In the second part, we will identify strategic elements of the policy and institutional context to support the process at scale, priorities to generate those conditions and progresses so far.

ES – La sesión pone de relieve los retos y las oportunidades de una normativa de importación libre de deforestación para reducir la deforestación en regiones donde los commodities son producidos por pequeños agricultores, como el café y el cacao en Perú. A través de un diálogo en dos fases entre los actores involucrados, en primer lugar, escucharemos cómo la UE busca minimizar el riesgo de que ingresen al mercado único europeo commodities asociados a la pérdida de bosques y cómo, desde las empresas hasta el gobierno y los agricultores, los actores de la cadena de valor están proyectando el cumplimiento de la normativa, los retos y los riesgos. En la segunda parte, identificaremos los elementos estratégicos del contexto político e institucional para apoyar el proceso a escala, las prioridades para generar estas condiciones y los progresos realizados a la fecha.
