Land Use Dialogues: The Role of the Land Sector in Pursuing 1.5°C

Invitation Only

Promoting sound avenues for the land sector to contribute to the Paris goals is a key factor in climate mitigation. Due to the competing demands for land use, it is crucial to find ways to address food security, biodiversity, land governance, and sustainable resource management while also identifying potential unintended consequences of mitigation in the land sector. In doing this, we must consider the role of existing policy venues and their suitability for managing these issues while ensuring that stakeholder needs are effectively addressed and respected.

The Stanley Center is partnering with a coalition of civil society groups with deep expertise on land sector issues—including the Center for Carbon Removal, Conservation International, Environmental Defense Fund, Forest Trends, National Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, Woods Hole Research Center, and the World Wildlife Fund—to hold a dialogue where participants will consider the actions by governments already pledged in nationally determined contributions, and work towards shaping the relationship between land use and climate mitigation.
