IPCC Report on Climate Change and Land- What Our Members Are Saying
A new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), released today, focuses on climate change and land, honing in on issues including desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management and food security.The report reveals that agriculture, forestry and other types of land use account for 23% of human greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time natural land processes absorb carbon dioxide equivalent to almost a third of carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels and industry. Hans-Otto Pörtner, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group II said, "Land already in use could feed the world in a changing climate and provide biomass for renewable energy, but early, far-reaching action across several areas is required. Also, for the conservation and restoration of ecosystems and biodiversity.” We take a look at what some of our members are saying about the new report, from the importance of restoring natural habitats such as ancient woodlands to the action needed to support global food systems.
