Plan Vivo at COP21 and the Global Landscapes Forum

The 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) will take place from the 30 November to 11 December 2015 in Paris. Governments from around the world will convene with the aim of developing a new global agreement that will prevent global temperatures from rising more than­ 2°C.

The Plan Vivo Foundation secretariat will be present and speaking at various side events at COP21. If you'd like to schedule a meeting with us, please contact us.

We are also an official exhibitor at the Global Landscapes Forum on the 5-6 Dec, 2015. Please drop us a line if you'd like to meet with us or drop by Booth 8 in the Food Security and Livelihoods Pavilion (Pavilion B). We will be presenting the latest progress on SHAMBA and participate  in the launchpad of the Nakau Progamme on Dec 5th at 12.15 - 13.00 in Room 251.

We'll be active during COP21 as discussions develop around tropical and temperate forests, mangroves and other natural ecosystems, solutions for smallholder farmers and rural communities, as well as useful new tools and innovations. We'd like to hear from you. Follow us on Twitter! @Plan_Vivo
