IPCC Land Use Report

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a special report today on climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems. Flo was a contributing author to Chapter 4: Land degradation. The report shows that better land management can contribute to tackling climate change, but is not the only solution. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors is essential if global warming is to be kept to well below 2ºC, if not 1.5ºC.
