Caux Dialogue on Land and Security

Living Landscapes: putting people at the centre of ecosystem restoration

Thursday, 27. June 2019 - 14:00 to Sunday, 30. June 2019 - 14:30


The threats stemming from the interaction of global warming, soil infertility, pollinator loss, chemical leaching and ocean acidification are still underestimated by decision-makers around the world.

Climatic collapse and massive desertification are a destabilising blow to health, wealth and equality. Rising tensions find outlets in conflict and migration. Dealing with them in isolation is a recipe for failure; integrating them holistically is a far more promising path.

The Caux Dialogue on Land and Security has been exploring these issues since 2013 by bringing together public and private leaders with small farmers, activists and researchers to build a community of practice.

The potential benefits of global-scale ecosystem restoration are huge, ranging from climate change reversed to environmental migration curbed and peace sustained. Experience has shown that the only way to achieve ecosystem restoration and its desired outcomes is to put local communities in charge.

At the 2019 Dialogue, global thought leaders and practitioners will explore how community and individual actions can reverse degradation leading to peace and stability.

Join us this summer at the Caux Conference and Seminar Centre to address the multiple challenges ahead, find like-minded people to collaborate with and get equipped with the latest insights and skills in sustainability, peacebuilding and finance.
