  • Rights and Resources Initiative, RRI, organise the 10th dialogue on forests, governance and climate change 7-8 September 2011 in The Hague, Netherlands.

    RRI organises the dilalogue together with Oxfam and in collaboration with LAND Academy, Netherlands and EcoAgriculture Partners, and the subject is: Common approaches to dealing with the challenges of food security and climate change in forests and agriculture.

    The meeting will identify common approaches to dealing with the interconnected global challenges of responding to the food crisis, forest loss and degradation, the need to drive additional investment into agriculture, and adaptation to climate change. The meeting will bring more focused attention to the interconnection between forests, agriculture, the rights of producers and affected populations, and the growing global demand for agricultural land and products. By bringing together the communities of practice that deal with different but interrelated issues, the Dialogue will consider issues such as agriculture as a driver in forest loss and degradation, the role forests play in providing food for the rural poor, as well as the implications of the global effort to meet the challenge of feeding nine billion people by 2050 without destroying the natural resources on which rural and forest dwellers rely for their livelihoods and food security.

    The meeting will set out an agenda to influence policy dialogues in a variety of fora, including the Committee on Food Security in October, the UNFCCC COP 17 in December, the International Ecoagriculture Conference in 2012, the follow-up conference to the Hague Global Conference on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change which will take place in Vietnam in 2012, and other forest, food and agriculture related initiatives.
