Annual Meeting

The 12th Annual Meeting of the Governors’ Climate and Forests Task Force (GCF Task Force) will convene in Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil, March 16th-18th, 2022, at the Vasco Vasques Convention Center – Manaus. For three days, Governors and civil servants from GCF Task Force states and provinces–which encompasses more than one-third of the world’s tropical forests–will join with leaders from the private sector, civil society, Indigenous peoples and local communities, national governments, and international organizations. Together, they will highlight collaborative strategies and approaches for reducing deforestation in tropical forest states and provinces and the interrelated goals of reducing poverty, improving livelihoods, securing rights and protecting cultures, promoting private investments, and building low-emissions, forest-based economies.

GCF Task Force Annual Meeting

Because of COVID-19, we have reduced the capacity of this year’s meeting for the safety of participants. The GCF Task Force Secretariat and the Government of Amazonas will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and corresponding travel advisories in the coming months and will make every effort to ensure the health and security of Annual Meeting participants.

The meeting is by invitation only. If you are interested in attending the 2022 Annual Meeting in Manaus, please contact the GCF Task Force Secretariat at secretariat@gcftaskforce.org
