This seminar held in May 2016 brought key scientists together with environmental, development and human rights NGOs to understand the Paris Agreement’s implications for forests and land use. A final report of the meeting gives an overview of discussions and presentations given.
After presentations and discussions, participants agreed on the following priorities:
- Urgent need to reduce emissions
- Urgent need to increase carbon sequestration in land and forests
- Forests and land do not offset fossil fuel emissions
- Redefine ‘negative emissions’
