Event description

Description

Land-use and land-cover change is one of the key processes through which humans affect the functioning of the Earth system, contributing to both global environmental change and its impacts on human well-being. 40% of the land area is managed as croplands and pastures, and up to 80% of the land surface is impacted one way or the other by human activities. In the wake of the Paris COP21 agreement, issues of land use are becoming central for achieving a <2°C warming world. What is currently a source of greenhouse gases will need to be rapidly transformed into a sink, and maintained that way. Whether – and how – this can be achieved while enhancing yields, providing areas for conservation and biodiversity, and enhancing other ecosystem services is not yet clear.
