How does the land we live off affect climate change? How can land be used to reduce emissions – and feed the world’s growing population at the same time? The IPCC report on climate change and land touches on many thorny issues, and the question of which key points should be made in the summary was therefore hotly debated.
At SMHI’s press conference on Friday, a lead author of the report, SEI’s Francis X. Johnson, explains details and answers questions.
“The report makes very clear what a critical role land use plays in managing climate change and identifies the multiple ways in which it is connected to both climate and development targets. It highlights the urgent need for changes in how we use land and biomass,” says Francis X. Johnson.
