  • Welcome to Technical Session 1.6 Managing Landscapes for Food, Fuel, Fiber and Forests: Innovative approaches in a time of food insecurity and climate change Sponsored by: Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security The Forests Dialogue International Forestry Resources and Institutions
  • “As we get closer to 2050, maintaining a near zero deforestation rate will require forestry and farming practices that produce more with less land, water and pollution…” The 4Fs Initiative Gary Dunning Executive Director The Forests Dialogue
  • The Forests, Food, Fuel and Fibre (4Fs) Challenge 2010 Logged forest Farmland Plantation Unlogged forest Other ecosystems
  • The Big Squeeze Do Nothing in 2050 High greenhouse gas emissions Huge decline in biodiversity
  • Our 4Fs Challenge - Agricultural expansion leading deforestation; - Food security clashing with mitigation and conservation; - Lack of engagement between land use interests and climate initiatives.
  • The 4Fs Initiative “for fairer, more sustainable land-use choices” - Engage: Create platforms for dialogue among forest and agriculture stakeholders. - Explore: Support research on key challenges. - Change: Improve land-use decision making processes on the ground and promote a landscape based approach.
  • 4Fs Initiative Targets - Build cross-sectoral, multistakeholder platforms to drive innovative landscape approaches at national and international levels - Identify best practice with landscape-level land-use decision making - Engage commodity supply chain to broaden support and move certification towards a more landscape based approach - Greater coordination between interventions
  • 4Fs in Brazil www.theforestsdialogue.org
  • Challenges - intensify land-use without causing environmental or social harm? - conduct integrated, participatory and rights-based land-use planning? - better value ecosystem services when making land-use decisions? - support family based sustainable farming? - change consumption patterns? - create international standards and policies that help?
  • Ways Forward - National platform for engagement on 4Fs - Integrated and participatory land-use planning - Support for family farming - Local to global supply chain management - Improved governance - Coordinate international guidance on land use
