AGENDA

The 12th Annual Meeting of the Governors’ Climate & Forests Task Force presents an opportunity to connect with, and learn from, subnational governmental leaders (Governors, Secretaries of the Environment, and civil servants) hailing from 1/3rd of the world’s tropical forest states and provinces, along with key partners from the private sector, civil society, foundations, and national governments. Over the course of three days, the GCF Task Force and partners will highlight new development models for forest-based strategies that work to eradicate poverty, protect cultures, conserve tropical forests and mitigate global climate change.
