The role of water in ensuring mosaic landscapes

Productive, mosaic, landscapes – where a mix of trees, forests and agricultural lands support the livelihoods of people, produce raw materials, strengthen biodiversity and maintain the water cycle are a prerequisite for sustainable development.

Sustainably managing existing landscapes, and restoring degraded landscapes is therefore crucial to achieve all global goals, and ensure a healthy planet for the prosperity of all.

However, sustainably managing or restoring landscapes is not possible without water.

In this webinar, we will discuss the role of water for productive and resilient landscapes, and the interlinkages between water and trees in landscapes, specifically examining the contributions of water-centred sustainable land and forest management. We will also highlight positive effects of having the provision of water services as a main management objective, to achieving the SDGs

This is the second webinar of a series: Water’s role in ensuring a healthy planet for all

On 2 and 3 June 2022, a crucial environmental meeting will be held in Stockholm, Sweden: Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity. Stockholm +50 will commemorate the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment and celebrate 50 years of global environmental action.

Anchored in the Decade of Action, the event aims to act as a springboard to accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, including the 2030 Agenda, Paris Agreement on climate change, the post-2020 global Biodiversity Framework, and encourage the adoption of green post-COVID-19 recovery plans.

SIWI will hosts this webinar series to mark this moment.
