Caux Dialogue on Land and Security (CDLS)
The business of land restoration and trust
11 – 15 July 2017
The case for tackling land degradation and conflict is clear. Land degradation costs businesses around $40 billion a year, and is a real risk to the future of the food, fibre, forestry and bioenergy industries. It reduces yields, threatens harvests, and destroys people’s livelihoods, until they’re forced to move to find work. Add weak governance and other socio-economic inequalities, and conflict often follows.
The solution? Uncovering new ideas to restore land and build trust, increase private investment, reduce the risk of conflict, lower the impact of climate change, and create new markets. That’s what the ground-breaking discussions at the Caux Dialogue on Land and Security 2017 aim to achieve.
