We are pleased to invite you all to a webinar on Tuesday, September 6 at 13:00 – 15:00 UTC (9 AM New York) where we will take a critical look at the latest reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) from a gender and rights-based perspective.

The IPCC reports, especially on adaptation and mitigation, recognize that support for gender-just community conservation and restoration of forests and other ecosystems, including by strengthening land tenure rights, is one of the most effective ways to mitigate climate change. Join experts who will demystify and explain key IPCC issues related to land, forests, climate change and the rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities, as well as the many the false solutions being put forth through the increasing corporate capture of climate policy-making.

We will also take this opportunity to launch our new video showcasing initiatives to protect forests, biodiversity and their livelihoods and being implemented by the Global Forest Coalition’s member groups—ones that gender-just and community-governed.

Register now to be part of the event—don’t miss this opportunity!

We hope to see you there. Please share this invitation with colleagues and friends. We will have simultaneous interpretation available in French and Spanish.
