On November 16th, the 2016 Global Landscapes Forum was held in Marrakech, Morocco, alongside UNFCCC COP22. As in previous years, the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) was organized as part of Global Landscapes Forum (GLF), with different components implemented before and during the forum.
This report presents the main findings of the 2016 Youth in Landscapes Initiative. It serves to give insight into how the program components contributed to the objectives of YIL and provide recommendations for the subsequent years. Through a demanding selection procedure, in which more than six hundred people applied, a group of eight young professionals and students were selected as Youth Facilitators.
The main findings are based on an analysis of qualitative and quantitative data gathered through a combination of different evaluation methods, including surveys, focus groups, interviews and ethnographic observation.
