What role do forests, land and food systems play in limiting warming to 1.5 degrees?
And what can the EU do about it?
Fern and ACT Alliance EU would like to invite you to consider these questions at our launch event of the
CLARA report: Missing Pathways to 1.5°C: The role of the land sector in ambitious climate action
When: Tuesday, November 6th – light lunch offered from 12:30, event until 15:00
Where: SQUARE – Brussels Meeting Centre – Glace entrance, Mont des Arts 22 – Brussels
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees showed how many hundreds of millions of lives, species and ecosystems could be saved if this more ambitious target were met. It revealed that to meet this ambition would require us to remove carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere, referring to land based removals. It also revealed that the sustainable level of carbon removals was very limited.
Now the EU is developing its own vision on climate action with its 2050 climate strategy. The impact on Earth’s land and forests – including all of us, who depend on them – will vary dramatically depending on the pathway chosen.
Join our event, hosted by ACT Alliance EU and Fern, “Missing pathways: resilient land solutions in the EU long-term strategy” for a discussion on the opportunities offered and risks faced by forestry and agriculture lands under different climate scenarios.
