Water and Climate Pavilion

Integrated land and water solutions for agricultural climate change mitigation

Although carbon cycle stability is crucial for soil fertility and biodiversity, between 20-60% of carbon stocks historically stored in soil organic matter as active components have been lost since soil cultivation began – mainly due to changes in land use and land management.  With over 40% of the Earth’s surface degraded, impacting over 3.2 billion people (IPBES 2018), continuing with business-as-usual is not an option.

This session will bring together multiple stakeholders to strategize integrated land and water solutions for climate change mitigation. They will address key questions, including:

  1. What can we do to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for food/water systems?
  2. What can we do to increase sequestration?
  3. How will these interventions be implemented and what is needed to drive them to scale?
  4. Who will pay for the interventions?
