WEBINAR: Climate Justice and Resilience

Climate Justice and Resilience: Farmers and Communities on the Front Lines
Friday, September 25, 2020
9am EST

Join the Rainforest Alliance and an international group of experts for a discussion of environmental resilience and justice strategies and solutions in the face of the global climate crisis.

Farmers worldwide are feeling the brunt of climate change.

We need to get climate-smart when it comes to agriculture and the global food supply.

The climate crisis is thrusting the world’s farming communities into deeper poverty while destroying forests and other ecosystems. Scientists, local and indigenous leaders declare we have very limited time to harness our best solutions and act to build climate resilience for local communities living on the front lines of climate change.
This virtual global event will bring together a diverse set of leaders in a solutions-focused roundtable addressing these and other questions:
• What are the most crucial actions companies and governments must take now to bring about climate justice and resilience for the world’s rural poor?
• With one-quarter of the world’s forests under the control of indigenous and local people, how can all of us better support the economic success and empowerment of indigenous peoples?
• How exactly does climate-smart agriculture support those who feed us to adapt to the crisis, and how can we scale this model up rapidly and sustainably?
