Land & Carbon Lab’s Summit will bring together policymakers, practitioners, and innovators seeking to harness the power of geospatial data to achieve this decade's climate, nature and sustainable development goals.

We will now be livestreaming all the highlights from this three-day summit so you can join us from anywhere in the world. You will also be able to access the livestreamed sessions on demand. Hear from world class experts as they discuss how advances in geospatial mapping can help us:

  1. Accelerate implementation of locally-led landscape restoration
  2. Tackle deforestation and nature crime
  3. Strengthen community-led land stewardship
  4. Ensure accountability for conversion-free supply chains
  5. Enhance policy and finance mechanisms to scale nature-based solutions
  6. Plan land use for a more sustainable food future
  7. Transparently track progress towards global targets for nature and climate
  8. Create more equitable, sustainable and resilient urban areas
