Description

The Missing Pathway: How the land-sector can address climate breakdown while safeguarding land rights, food sovereignty and biodiversity

Policy choices to maintain global warming to 1.5°C have been largely informed by modelling that is geared toward accommodating our energy-intensive economies. This has led policymakers to largely ignore how behavioural and societal shifts can mitigate climate change.

Ahead of official announcements of Nature-based solutions at the Climate Action Summit, this event will present CLARA's 'Missing Pathways' report, which details what land use solutions can look like.

This “missing pathway” includes how addressing food production, degraded ecosystems and human rights violations can offer immediate, cost-effective and equitable strategies for meeting the 1.5°C temperature goal alongside fossil fuel emissions reductions. Restoring degraded lands, protecting biodiverse ecosystems, securing indigenous and community land rights and transforming agricultural practices can be implemented today to decrease emissions and absorb carbon.

The event will also highlight existing case studies from CLARA members to inspire governments, development institutions and the broader climate community to adopt a pathway which works for both ecosystems and people.


Speakers:

Moderator: Peter Riggs, CLARA coordinator, who will also present the CLARA report

Mary Booth, Partnership for Policy Integrity: on the global impact of increasing demand for biomass on forests

Kelsey Perlman, Fern: Ecosystems restoration: Separating healthy forests from tree planting in Europe

Speaker TBD : Rights and Resources Initiative : Why indigenous rights are central to protecting the planet
