The Double-Edged Nature of Land: A Practical Analysis of the IPCC's Special Report on Climate Change and Land

The Double-Edged Nature of Land:  A Practical Analysis of the IPCC's Special Report on Climate Change and Land

“[…] the IPCC’s SRCCL shines light on interlinked global challenges like climate adaptation and mitigation, desertification, land degradation and food security, whilst suggesting land-related actions/NBS that can mutually benefit all these areas. Whilst much of the current discussion misguidedly focuses on singular individual lifestyle changes, just like with the Special Report on 1.5C, we urgently need large-scale and context-dependent action that is participatory, inclusive, multi-sectoral, and actively considers ecological, social, economic, cultural and institutional factors.”
