As the ratification process for the Paris Climate Agreement begins, a new Fern briefing has shown how the EU’s new policy on land and forests could help it to be more ambitious on its climate change targets, and set a positive precedent globally by developing a separate pillar - with its own target - for the so-called LULUCF sector.
The briefing is based on a study produced for Fern by the Oeko-Institut, the environmental research institute. You can read the full report here.
The briefing includes Fern’s recommendations to the EU to decarbonise deeper and faster and to use land and forests to mitigate climate change to help it meet the Paris Agreement’s new, more ambitious target to limit global warming.
It also includes graphs, compiled by the Oeko-Institut, showing the historical and projected emissions and removals from LULUCF sector activities for the EU and each individual Member State.
