Time: Wednesday, 10/Apr/2013: 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Special session organized by GEF
This Special Session supports the two conference topic themes of (1) Economic and social impacts of DLDD; (2) Costs and benefits of policies and practices addressing DLDD.
Therefore, we shall identify the following themes in our Special Session:(i) the significant investments already being made in the GEF LD Strategy and their impact; (ii) how a focus on carbon – above- and below-ground – could add value, economically and socially, to future GEF investments; (iii) how we can track and measure the benefits of SLM in terms of carbon sequestered; (iv) the policies and practices that will enhance the benefits brought by carbon in future GEF strategies.
Our objectives are to: (1) demonstrate the importance of the current work of the Land Degradation Focal Area of the Global Environment Facility, with special reference to Sustainable Land Management – SLM – and the potential benefits derived from above- and below-ground sequestration of carbon; (2) show how GEF investments and strategic planning support the UNCCD; (3) consult the scientific community on issues related to SLM that might be included in future GEF Strategic plans
