Land Use Dialogues: Setting International Policy Objectives for Agriculture Transitions in Pursuit of the 1.5°C Goal
As countries take steps to limit global warming to 1.5° C, as enshrined in the Paris Agreement, policymakers must prepare for agricultural transformations to play a key role in complete decarbonization, and possibly negative emissions by mid-century. Solutions must go beyond reductions in point-of-production emissions, to include supply chain changes and consumption patterns that address food waste and loss, food and nutrition security, diet and consumption patterns, land degradation, soil health and sequestration, rural development, and the rights of smallholders, women, and indigenous people.
The Stanley Center is partnering with a coalition of civil society groups with deep expertise on land sector issues—including Woods Hole Research Center, the Center for Carbon Removal, and Environmental Defense Fund—to hold a dialogue where participants will work to formulate a set of international policy priorities to transition agriculture alongside and through the implementation of the Paris Agreement, ahead of its implementation in 2020.
