Despite clear scientific consensus and a growing youth-led movement, the effects of global heating on ecosystems and human health continue to rise. Since land is both a source and a sink of greenhouse gases, nature-based solutions have the potential to contribute over one-third of the total climate change mitigation needed by 2030.
CIFOR-ICRAF is providing evidence and analysis of how nature-based solutions – such as sustainable forest and wetland management, agroforestry and landscape restoration – can help mitigate climate change and help local people adapt to its effects, while working to help countries meet their commitments under the Paris Agreement.
