More than a third of humanity – 2.5 billion people – directly depend on nature for their livelihoods, including through fishing, farming and forestry. We cannot achieve our global goals in ending poverty unless we ensure healthy, functioning ecosystems. In this session, several keynote speakers focus on the various dimensions of nature-based livelihoods, and the constraints and pressures facing these livelihoods around the world. Lightning talks will present different solutions for securing nature-based livelihoods through new more inclusive, gender-balanced and just corporate supply chains, ecosystem restoration, market incentives, through finance and local action. A rapid round-table panel will identify underlying issues and key steps required going forward.
This session will take place on 24 September 2020, 3:00-4:30 PM (EDT). The event will be broadcast live on this page.
