Sustainable Utilization of Land Resources

September 15 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm

Urbanization and the continuous need for land resources has taken a toll on the world’s ecosystems and biodiversity. The irony is, while we need to extract resources from the land to fuel the economy, we also need the benefits the land provides in its natural state such as biodiversity. As a result, the sustainable utilization of land resources is necessary in order to enable the land to provide all its services effectively.

How can we do this sustainably? How can we as individuals, companies, governments, countries, offset the negative impacts we are experiencing due to deforestation, ravaged ecosystems, and loss of biodiversity?

Join us on September 15 from 11- 12:30 pm EST to discuss United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 15: Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.
