Sustainable Land Management Critical to Combating Climate Change: IPCC Special Report

August 22, 2019 EcoVadis FR


The report cites the need to change the ways food is produced and land is managed to cut emissions and keep warming to below 1.5°C above preindustrial levels.

 

WG III Co-Chair Jim Skea explained that land already in use could feed the world in a changing climate, and provide biomass for renewable energy, but emphasized that “early, far-reaching action” is required.

 

WG II Co-Chair Debra Roberts said balanced diets, featuring plant-based foods, such as coarse grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables, and animal-sourced food that is sustainably produced present adaptation and mitigation opportunities.

The report represents an important scientific contribution to, among others, the UNCCD COP 14 in New Delhi, India, in September, and UNFCCC COP 25 in Santiago, Chile, in December.
