This event discusses transnational initiatives affecting forest governance, lands and peoples. It includes recommendations from think tanks in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Brazil and the UK.
Panellists explore three dimensions of global partnerships for sustainable development:
The quality of relationships and research partnerships that exist between policy institutes in the Global North and the Global South.
The role of policy institutes headquartered in the Global South in leading or co-leading critical analysis of transnational policy mechanisms that affect the ‘developing world’.
The need to redress power asymmetries and policy models to achieve domestic and global priorities for sustainable development. These efforts should go beyond supporting international supply chains and position well-being and sustainable livelihoods at the core of international partnerships.
This work is supported by the Forest Governance, Markets and Climate (FGMC) Programme of the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
There will be simultaneous interpretation in French, Portuguese and Bahasa Indonesia.
