Link with Agriculture and Rural Development Day (ARDD)

Similar to Forest Day, Agriculture and Rural Development Day (AARD) was launched at COP15 in Copenhagen to provide a forum for discussion of agriculture and climate change issues. Forest Day and ARDD organisers have coordinated planning to identify synergies between the two events through collaboration. This year two of the Forest Day Discussion Forums broadly titled Landscape Approaches had similar themed sessions that took place at ARDD, the day before Forest Day.

For those interested in agriculture, forests and climate change, these were the sessions not to be missed.
